IN MEMORIAM

Eva Millicent, daughter of A.L. and Fannie B. Whitney, was born in Cook, Johnson County, Nebraska, and died March 11th, 1908 at the age of 11 years and 24 days. Thus passed away the spirit of one, who had lived but a few years in the flesh, to the higher sphere to suffer and die no more. We knew her as a sweet little girl who had her hopes and expectations like all others, but has been called on before and surely is now in that blessed realm of pure spirits, far above our present estate. “She is not dead, but sleepeth,” for spirits never die. “Suffer little children to come unto me, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Rest on, little body, in the grave, till the Master calleth for thee to reunite with the spirit gone on before.

 

In Jesus Christ all things are well. We bury the young body away, but only for a time; till the Lord calls and it will answer. We bid thee good bye for the present, only to meet in the morning. Good-bye, Eva, good-bye, and may God bless those who tarry awhile longer behind.

 

-- J.T. Jenkins
