(Newspaper Article... Death of Alonzo M. Briggs, The Boone News-Republican, Boone, IA)


Three Children and Other Relatives Survive
Services Were Held on Thursday Afternoon
The Service Was In Charge of the Rev. E.L. Frost and
Was Followed by Interment in Linwood Park Cemetery

The funeral services for the late A.M. Briggs were held from his home No. 1515 Green street, Thursday afternoon, Feb 15th at 2:30 o'clock. The Rev. E.L. Frost, pastor of the Central Church of Christ, was in charge. Miss Gay Hart, accompanied by Mrs. Reynolds sang, "I Need Thee Every Hour, and "Jesus, Blessed Jesus".
The text used was selected from the 23 Psalm, "The Lord is my Shepherd: I Shall not want." "There are three thoughts in this sentence which are comforting," said the pastor. "The first is "The Lord is.' God is not a false hope. He lived and reigns. And in Him we live and move and have our being. And this all wise and all powerful God is 'Our Shepherd' is the second consoling thought of this passage. And the third, 'I shall not want'. As God has made ever provision for our physical needs and life, so will He provide for our spiritual needs."

The pallbearers were Messrs: Allison Miller, Will Smith, Tom Mugan, Will Harvey, Rae Smith and George Brown.
Interment was made in Linwood Park Cemetery, east.
