Verna D., infant son of C.E. Brown, was born July 6, 1887 and after a few days suffering died Nov. 15, 1887.  The mother preceded it to the spirit land about eleven weeks, leaving her little babe behind only a short time to comfort her husband.
"Life is a span, a fleeting hour, how soon the vapor flies; Man is a tender transient flower, That e'en in blooming dies."
The little babe has gone to rest
To dwell with God forever blest
Could we but see his smiling face
Delighted with that happy place
And see him in his mother's arms
Delighted with the Heavenly charms
Could we but hear his prattling tongue
So sweetly sin the heavenly song
We could not wish him back again
But say, sweet babe, in heaven remain
