The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Preston were saddened when word came that Evelyn Irene, who had come to brighten the Preston home had passed away at birth on August 28th.
Deepest sympathy is extended to the family in their sorrow and we hope for a swift recovery of the mother.
Yet love will dream, and failth will trust
(Since He who knows our need is just)
That somehow, somewhere, meet we must.
Alas for him who never sees
The starts shine through his cypress trees!
Who, hopeless, lays his deat away,
Nor looks to see the breaking day
Across the mournful marbles play!
Who hath not learned, in hours of faith
The truth to flesh and sense unknown,
That life is ever Lord of death,
And love can never lose its own!
—John Greenleaf Whittier
A brief funeral service was conducted at the home Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock with Rev. Tanner officiating. Burial was in the Farnam cemetery.
