"God calls our loved ones, but we lose not wholly What He hath given. They live on earth, in thought and deed as truly
As in His Heaven."

We lose sight of the physical form, the voice we loved to hear is still, but memory of what they were to us, makes real to the heart their presence. They are yonder and we here, yet not so far away, that we cannot feel the touch of the vanished hand. Elmer E. Ackerman entered the unseen world, Monday at 8 a.m., June 23, 1924, at his home in Lacona. The news of his departure brought sorrow to the many friends who loved him, and cast a gloom over the community, where as a citizen he was highly respected. He was a native
of the town of Boylston, born December 28, 1875. His parents were Edwin and Sarah Bartlett Ackerman, who departed this life not long since. He was united in marriage to Miss Sylvia Flinn, Morristown, April 19, 1889, who survives him. He is also survived by an only sister, Mrs. Fred I. Guy, Lacona. For the past 16 years he successfully conducted a general store in Lacona, where his name was synonymous with integrity and uprightness. He enjoyed to the fullest extent the confidence of his customer. Those who dealt with him,
knew that he did business on the square. His health showed signs of impairness four years ago, and despite his own wonderful courage, and the best medical help the inevitable
came to pass. He wanted to live, and had everything to live for, but he who knoweth best decreed otherwise.

"His obsequies were held at his late home, Wednesday afternoon, June 25." A concourse of people met to pay their last tribute of respect to what was mortal of him. The moistened eyes spoke impressively of the place he occupied in the affection of those present. Rev. T.T. Davies conducted the funeral services. Burial in the family lot at Woodlawn cemetery. The floral tribute was elaborate and
beautiful, and this added to the silent tread, and subdued voice of the mourners spoke, volumes of the real worth of the one called away. He loved nature, and saw the handiwork
of the Creator in mountain, river and forest and in this wonderful temple he paid obeisance to the God who is all in all. He had a kind heart, no one in need appealed to him in vain. A man whom to know was to love.

"Rest in peace, and may thy slumber be sweet."
