IN MEMORIAM
On February 19th 1918 the death angel visited our home and took from us our dear father, Jessie E. Rogers. He bore his pains so patiently and was given all the medical attention possible. Despite his suffering all that loving friends and kind physicians could do was to no avail. O how we miss the footsteps of our dear father. Oh, if he could only speak to us one more time. It was so hard to look at his cold face for the last time here on earth. We are sad without him but God does all things well. We know we all must strive too meet him in a world where we will never part any more. There is a shadow in our home, the voice is hushed and still, a vacant place that can never be filled. It is hard to bear our grief but we would not call him back from perfect peace and rest but take up life’s burden cheerfully for God does all for the best. ‘Twas hard to speak the word we must forever part but the memory will be cherished till we see thy Heavenly face. Lonely are our hearts today for the one we loved has forever passed away. He was married to Miss R. Victoria Layfield when a young man. There were nine children born to them. He was laid to rest at Hayes cemetery.
