On Tuesday, Jan 7, 1908, death visited the home of Mr and Mrs R A Zimmerly, five miles southeast of Raymond, and took away their oldest son, aged 4 years, 7 month and 26 days, caused from a short illness of 6 days of the dreadful disease diphtheria. He was a bright sunbeam in the home. On Tuesday morning as the clock pointed twenty minutes til twelve Jesus called him to himself. His last words were papa and mama then he lay back on his pillow and silently without a struggle passed away. The home is sad; his place is vacant, never more will they hear his sweet voice again, hard as it was to hive him up; still they know he is safe in the arms of Jesus who said suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of Heaven. We know his soul has taken its flight to that great beyond where there is no sickness nor death. His home is in Heaven; there is no parting there. All will be happy, glorious, bright and fair. There will be no tears in that bright home beyond. [unknown paper and date - Submitted by: Lynn Boyd Reener]
