Fridley - Died near Mount Morris, Ogle County, Ill. Our dear brother David Fridley. He was born June 22, 1840, died October 2, 1899, 59 yrs., 3 mo. and 10 days. He was a faithful and devoted brother in Christ, and a kind husband. He leaves a kind companion to mourn her sad loss, which we believe is his eternal gain, and how truthful the language:
"I miss thee from my home, dear husband,
I miss thee from thy place,
A shadow o'er my life is cast,
I miss thry smiling face,
I miss thy kind and willing hands,
Thy fond and earnest care,
My home is dark without thee,
I miss thee everywhere"
Funeral improved from Heb. ix, 27, 28, by the Brethren amnd Elder D. Price from Mt. Morris, Ill. to a large and attentive congregation.
Vindicator, November 1899
