In Memoriam

Lizzie Hicks, the oldest child and only daughter of J. N. and Alice McGough Hicks, ended this life Thursday, July 3, 1903. She would have been ten years old the fourteenth of this month. She was a bright and lovable child and her death has caused a deep gloom to overshadow the Loutre community as well as the once happy fireside from which her presence is vacant. The vacant chair can no more be filled; the golden hair has been curled against a placed brow; the sweet voice to which the parents listened with pleasure and pride is hushed forever; but she has filled a place in heaven which is brighter than any on earth. She is now numbered among the happy angels around the Savior’s throne. Broken-hearted parents, we know you miss your precious jewel, and to you we extend our deepest sympathy. May God in His wisdom and mercy comfort you in your hour of sorrow. WINNIE.
