Obituary Harlen DeBoer
(By Arthur G. Annette, Pastor)

Harlen Russel DeBoer was born March 1st, 1923, in Grundy Center and died at the home of his parents at 8 o'clock Wednesday evening, Sept. 17, 1930, at the age of 7 years, 6 months and 16 days.

Many other relatives and friends will miss this little soul whom God has been pleased to take from us in these very tender years.

Harlen was a faithful member of the Baptist Bible School. We shall miss him greatly and yet we do rejoice in his promotion to the higher and better life.

Out of town relatives present at the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Kasper Klinkenborg, Martin Kruger and family, John Snyderman and Mr. and Mrs. J. DeBoer, Tom DeBoer and Mr. and Mrs. Cornelius DeBoer from George, Iowa; Raymond Bonk and family, Waterloo; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bakker, Steamboat Rock.

"O, what do you think the angels say?"
Said the children up in Heaven.
"There is a dear little boy coming home today,
He's almost ready to fly away
From the earth we used to live in.
Let's go and open the gates of joy
Open them wide for this dear little boy,"
Said the children up in Heaven.

"God wanted him here, where His little ones meet,"
Said the children up in Heaven.
"He shall play with us in the golden street,
He had grown too fair, he had grown too sweet,
For the world he used to live in.
He needed the sunshine, the dear little boy,
That gilds this side of the gates of joy,"
Said the children up in Heaven.
