In memory of George Milton Bell, of Irwinton, Ga (Wilkinson County)

Bro. Bell was born Sept. 14, 1855, married to Miss Charity Helton, June 16,1880. To this union were born eight children, seven of whom are still living, four boys and three girls, together with his dear wife to mourn the loss of a devoted husband and kind father. Bro. Bell departed this life May 13, 1918. He leaves three brothers and three sisters and a host of other relatives and friends to mourn their loss. The writer tried to preach his funeral on the 14th to a large and attentive concourse of neighbors and friends at the home of the deceased, using for a text Rev.20.6, "Blessed and holy is he that part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power."

Bro. Bell never united himself to any church, though he realized., and oft so expressed himself to the writer, that it was a duty he owed to his God and Savior, but felt so unworthly he just kept putting it off. He has told me of the dealing of the Lord with him in leading him in repentance and forgiving his sins, giving him a precious hope through grace. Oh, how he has rejoiced in the glorious doctrine of salvation by grace, and I feel sure that the faith he clung to through life anchored to that within the vail, whither Jesus had entered for him. Today he is free from his troubles, trials and affliction, and has entered into that rest that remaineth for the people of God, an inheritance that is incorruptible and fadeth not away, reserved for him from the foundation of the world. Therefore we sorrow not as those that have no hope. By the same grace and faith he had in a blessed Savior, we trust some sweet day to meet him on the golden shores of deliverance.

To the sorrowing wife, children, brothers,and sisters, we commend you to the God of grace, praying that He may comfort your aching and bleeding hearts by His Holy Spirit and fill up the aching void by His substaining grace; that each of you may be prepared to meet him in that bright home above, there to sing redeeming grace and never dying love for all eternity, so there be an unbroken family around the Great White Throne. There nothing will enter to disturb.
