Little Fay Clark is improving slowly from her long siege of sickness. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Clark hope that she will soon be well again. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, March 1, 1916)

The grief that has come to the hearts and home of Mr. and Mrs. B. L. Clark is felt deeply by the whole community. The death of their little daughter, Faye [Fay] Constance has brought wounds that time can never heal. Little Faye was sick for eight weeks. All that medical aid and loving care could do was done, but God wanted Little Faye and at two o’clock Wednesday morning the little spirit took its heavenly flight. The funeral was held at the Dolliver M.E. church Thursday afternoon conducted by the pastor, Rev. Whitford, and was largely attended, the floral tributes were beautiful. Constance Carrol, Sylvia Caylor, Bernice Stillman and Lottie Pickell tenderly bore the little form to its last resting place. Little Faye was born October 14, 1913 and died March 15, 1916. To the sorrowing parents and all relatives this community extends their deepest sympathy.

Gone to a world of flowers and song,
Gone to live with the heavenly throng,
Gone where no traveler ne’er returns.
Gone for aye and our hearts do yearn,
But we can meet Faye beside the river
She’ll be in the care of the blessed Saviour.
We’ll not tarry long ‘ere we shall cross over
And be in the home eternal forever,
Where there’ll be no sadness nor sorrow.
Where there’s no night and no tomorrow,
Where there’ll be flowers, and smiles, and son,
Where we’ll meet in the heavenly home.

Those from away attending the funeral of Little Faye Clark was Mrs. Morris Follet, Mrs. Ezra Follet of Truman, Minnesota; Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Follett, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Champine of Ceylon, Minnesota; Mr. and Mrs. Will Barnett, Mr. and Mrs. Clate Follett, of Fairmont, Minnesota; Mr. and Mrs. Neitzell of Halfa; Mr. and Mrs. Ed Follett, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Richmond and sons of Armstrong, and Mrs. Grace Dare and children of Spirit Lake.
