    Obituary

     

    Died on the morning of the thirteenth of December 1892, little Hugh infant son of J. N. and Ida. M. Roberts, aged four months and six days. We administered many remedies, we mingled our prayers and tears together as we watched by his little cradle bed, but in vain, he faded like a gentle flower before our weeping eyes. His little body gave a way beneath the mortal stroke of disease and his spirit returned to God who gave it. And we are left here to wade through the trials and bereavements of earth, looking forward to the time when we will go home to that sweet babe. But we are not left to ourselves, this is our faith, that the same loving hand that took our darling from our embrace is still leading and guiding us, bringing us each day nearer home and everlasting happiness.

     

    Yes, we are coming baby coming

    When the storms of life are o'er,

    We will meet thee, fondly greet thee,

    Where pain and parting comes no more.

     

    A FRIEND.
