 IN LOVING REMEMBERANCE

On the 10th day of February the Death Angel came in our midst and saddened our hearts by taking our dear loving friend, Virgil Barron. In his leaving his wife has lost a true and loyal husband, and his children, a kind and tender father, and his father and mother, a noble son. To know him was to love him. His friends numbered many and enemies few.
Grieve not loved ones. God doeth all things well. Remember his last words that expressed a sweet consolation in telling his dear mother and loved ones not to grieve for him that he was ready and not afraid to die. "Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall all see God." He has only gone before to await your coming.
