Sunset and evening star
And one clear call for me
And may there be no
moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea
Twilight and evening bell
And after that the dark.
And may there be no sadness of fare well,
When I embark.
For tho' from out our bourne
   of time and place
The flood may bear me far
I hope to see my pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
Life's race is run
Earths day is done and now is rest
   and peacefulness.
Upon the quiet soul and on some glad
   day, not far away,
We'll meet to part no more.

   

Funeral services were held at the Beulah Methodist church Tuesday, January 23, 1934 at 2 P. M. in the presence of a very large, sympathizing congregation. Rev. Frank Tredway was the minister in charge. Rev. W. C. Harms, minister of Prairie City Illinois, brother-in-law of the deceased, delivered the discourse.
