Arthur Romaine, infant son of Christ and Martina Peterson was born at Estherville, Ia., Wednesday evening, Aug. 9th, 1922; departed this life on Friday morning, Aug. 18th, 1922 at near 5 a.m. The sorrowing parents have the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends in the early demise of their darling first born. The little life has not been wasted, having begun to live the spirit is unquenchable, Jesus lived little children while on earth and great love never grows less. Baby darling is safe in the arms of Jesus. God calls our loved ones but we loose not what he has given. They live in thought and deed as truly as they live in heaven.
Appropriate services were held on Friday afternoon at the undertaking parlors of Mahlum and Anderson conducted by P.H. Green. Miss Kate Lyman, soloist sang appropriate and beautiful hyms.
The little body was laid to rest near Grandmother Thompson, who a few days preceded baby Arthur in death. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of their many friends in the added sorrow that has come to them. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, August 23, 1922)
