Yulee GRIFFIS, the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. R. C. GRIFFIS of Rosedale, near Lawtey, passed away Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock August 12th, at the home of his parents and was laid to rest beside his grandmother, Mrs. Laura GRIFFIS, in the Evergreen Cemetery, Saturday at 10 o'clock.
He was 21 years of age, although he was an invalid all his life. He could never walk or talk, but was blest to hear and see. He bore his suffering well without a tear or murmur until a short while ago his health began to fail and he grew weaker until the end at last came.
Everthing that loving hands could do was done to relieve the sufferer, but God saw fit to call him. We know he will be missed, but God loved him too and took him away to better land, and resting place.
He leaves to mourn his departure a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. GRIFFIS, one brother, Roy GRIFFIS, four sisters, Mrs. L. J. NORMAN, Mrs. M. L. THOMPSON, Misses Lucille and Bertice GRIFFIS. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Rev. Jim STRICKLAND of Clay Hill.
