A. B. LYTAL

Memory of A. B. Lytal

            On Friday morning April 12th at 4 o'clock the death angel crept into our home and claimed for its victim our beloved husband and father and grandfather. His stay here on earth just liked a few days being seventy years, but still we ware not ready to give him up. He had been in failing health for several years but was bed fast for only a few days before God called him away.

            He was always ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. Dear father was a friend to all who know him and loved by all.

            He leaves a heart broken wife, several grand children besides other ones he was so dear to, to grieve over his passing.

Weep not dear ones For he is not gone, He is waiting with tile, angels, around the white throng.

His place is silent, His voice is still,

His chair is vacant is our home, Which can never be filled. But some day we will meet him. On the other shore, Where God says, "Come children, Ye shall weep 110 more."
