Death Of Walter MOSS Double Pneumonia the Cause of his Death
Which Occurred Wednesday Morning
Walter Dwight MOSS, the third son of Mr. and Mrs. W. D. MOSS,
died at the family residence 121 North 12th St., at 8:20, Wednesday
morning, the cause of his death being double pneumonia. His age was 12.
Walter had been sick for six weeks, and had patiently borne all his
sufferings, making a hard fight for life, but the little fellow's fight
was in vain. A favorite with his playmates, always, and ever ready to
take part in all their sports. His death has been expected for several
days, but recently he showed slight signs of improvement, which gave
the family hope that he might be spared.
The funeral will be held at the First M. E. church Thursday afternoon
at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. A. TAYLOR. The body will be laid to
rest in Oakwood.
