ESTA ELLIOTT

Of Esta, little daughter of George and Sarah Elliott. On the morning of May 1st, when all nature was wrapped in loveliness, little Esta passed from the shares of time to that of eternity, to dwell with the "white robed throng who have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Though she was scarcely two years old, and had never trod the paths of sin, we would commend the sorrowing parents to Him who "doeth all things well." Weep not dear friends as they who hath no hope, but rather rejoice that one more flower is blooming in paradise. Esta is now free from all care, where there will be no more sickness, pain and death, no more good byes, she now rests in that sunbright clime where father mother and brothers can go to her. Then look to Him who can heal the broken heart. Though Esta was a bright and loving child, far brighter is she today than any of the earthly. Her remains were laid to rest in the Mt. Zion Cemetery. Appropriate funeral services by Mr. Mason of the M.P. Church. - - S.B.W.
