Necessities of Respect

"Dearest friend thou hast left us.
And thy loss we deeply feel
But tis God that hath bereft us
We can all our sorrows heal."

Whereas, God in his infinite wisdom and power has seen fit to remove from our mid’st Mrs. J. D. Fenton, a beloved friend and member of our society. As a body we deeply deplore her sad and untimely death and extend to her bereaved family our deepest sympathy.

Mrs. Fenton had been raised in our town and was known by all as one who was ever ready to lend a helping hand to the distressed and to any who were in trouble.

How much she is missed in her home, by her husband, children, father, mother, sisters and brothers, they alone can tell. May they be led to see that God makes no mistakes and that he doeth all things well. Resolved that a copy of this be sent to the Baptist Chronicle and the Farmerville Gazette for publication. Resolved that a copy be sent to the family.

Resolved a copy be spread upon our minutes.

Mrs. Ramsey, Mrs. Breed, Mrs. Barnes, Com.
