Resolution of Respect

By the Ladies Aid Society, of Wesley Chappel, Nocreek, Kentucky.

Whereas, God, in his infinite wisdom has called from our society one of its members, Sister Janie Delaney, on February 19, 1918, and was laid to rest in the Alexander burying ground February 20.

Resolved, First.  That the society has lost one of its most loyal members, the community a kind and loving neighbor, and the home a loving and devoted mother.

Resolved, Second.  That we extend to Mr. Delaney and children our deepest sympathy in this their sad bereavement.  While we know that words can not heal the broken hearts, nor fill the vacant place, but if they will put their trust in the One who has given , but now has taken away, they will find comfort and consolation.

Resolved, Third.  That these resolutions be recorded on the Secretary’s book, and a copy be sent to the family of the deceased sister.
