W. O. CHAMPION

IN LOVING MEMORY OF W. O. CHAMPION

One year ago today, dear daddy you went away.

It seems so lonesome and sad. It’s almost more than we can bean to know that we will never see your sweet face again on this earth anal never hear you say “hello daughter,” never listen to your words of loving advice, or comfort in time of trouble, or when things go wrong.

We will never hear your step on the floor and know daddy is coming; You were always so good, humble and kind it s good to read. Christ’s own words in St. Matthew, fifth chapter; “Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.

7th chapter “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.” 8th: “Bessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.”
