In Memory of Brother Wm. Smith

To the officers and members of Marion Lodge, No. 283 F & A. M.

Whereas, it has pleased almighty God to remove from our midst by death our worthy and much beloved brother, Wm. Smith, and whereas we bow in humble submission to the word of him who worketh all things to the good of them who love and fear Him, yet we sincerely deplore the loss of our beloved brother, who has been a member of the Masonic fraternity for several years and has so conformed his life to the principles and teaching of that order as never to receive even a reprimand during the time as a Mason, but has proved himself true to the principles of Freemasonry.

Brother Smith was a faithful and devoted member of the Missionary Baptist church for a number of years, was a minister of the Gospel for several years, was born July 30th, 1854. Brother Smith joined the Masonic order at Lapile, Ark., and moved to Union Parish, La., three years ago where he joined Marion Lodge, No. 283, has ever lived a true Mason at heart, ever been faithful to his church, loyal to his country and true to his God and it may be truly said of him. Thou has been faithful over a few things enter thou into the joys of thy Lord and may we emulate his virtues and live such a life that when the Great Architect of the Universe, our Supreme Grand Master above, calls us from this toilsome life as he did our brother may we be prepared, to lay down our working tools, and enter into that spiritual building, that house not made with hands eternal in the Heavens, and align ourselves with that blood washed throng who sing His praises, throughout the ceaseless ages of a never ending eternity around the throne of God, therefore, be it.

Resolved, that in the death of Brother Smith, Marion Lodge, No. 283, of F. & A. M., has lost one of her truest members, his wife died just ten days before his death. Brother Smith departed this life March 15th, at 10 o’clock p.m. 1904.

Be it resolved that a copy of these resolutions be published in THE GAZETTE and a copy be sent to his family, also appear on the minutes of this Lodge.

J. W. Brown, C. T. Simmons, N. B. Pace, Committee.
