Saturday, January the 15th, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Janes, and took to a better home little Sarah, their youngest daughter. She was a delicate child all her brief life of seven years, but was very bright and interesting. A vacancy is felt in the house, a soreness in the hearts, which God alone can fill and heal. The Master saw that this frail body could not stand the rough storms of this world, so he transplanted it to the garden above, where it could flourish in the sunshine of His love. Jesus said, “Suffer the little children and to forbid them not to come unto me, for of such as of these is the Kingdom of heaven.” The bereaved parents have the sympathy of all their friends and neighbors. They have a sweet little daughter left which we hope may be spared to be a blessing to them. While the little one that is taken has gone before, thus leading their thoughts and affections above, “Nearer my God to thee, nearer to thee, thought it be a cross that leadeth me.” May our heavenly Father comfort them in their sorrow is the prayer of a friend.
Sarah S., daughter of E. G. and L. M. Janes, August 23, 1891 – January 13, 1906
