DEATH OF A LITTLE ONE

Willard Kellogg, son of Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Kellogg, was born near
Morningside, Woodbury Co., Iowa, Dec. 16, 1904, and departed this life at
his home about eleven miles southwest of Merrill, Plymouth County, Iowa,
August 20, 1909, aged 4 years 8 months and 20 days.

Death came suddenly after a brief illness of only one week. Deep, deep
sympathy was shown by the large audience which gathered at the Adaville U.B.
Church Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, where services were conducted by the
pastor, Rev. C.W. Mills. The feeling of sadness was deepened by the fact
that Willard was an only child, and this was the first funeral service in
the new church. But the cloud of sorrow has it's silver lining, for the
Master said, "Of such is the kingdom of Heaven."

A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is still;
His place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
