Sioux Center Nieuwsblad of Feb 27, 1907 In Dutch
Obituary: -. On October 26 of the previous year we were rejoiced with the birth of our first born, Gerben, now. Feb. 14, our hearts were deeply wounded, as the Lord took him back to Himself after some days of painful suffering. When our loss falls hard, we nevertheless consecrate him the Lord, and to follow Him humbly, trust that he, as the faithful Covenant God, had good intentions for our dear child and for us as well. His word: of such is the kingdom of heaven, a is comfort to our wounded hearts. We feel grateful to neighbors and friends for their help and participation in this time of our trial. Henry De Vries and Jennie Vermeer De Vries.
