We closed the icy fingers
Which always clung so sweet;
And kissed our Darling Baby, as We gave him to God to keep. CLARINDA JOURNAL, Clarinda, Iowa, May 4, 1916

Clythe Richard Ingram . Clythe Richard, son of Clythe and Etta Ingram, was born May 14, 1916, at Orleans, Nebr. When he was three months old his parents moved to St. Joseph, Mo., where they lived until coming to Clarinda six weeks ago, to visit relatives. Little Clythe was taken ill on April 18, 1916. On April 24, at 4:30 a.m., he passed away. He suffered intensely during his brief illness, but was resting sweetly when he died. He was an unusually bright and active child for his age. Everyone who knew him well loved him, and he loved everyone and knew no strangers. Everywhere he went he took happiness with him and wound himself around the hearts of all. His death seems an irreparable loss, and his short stay with us will never be forgotten. His funeral was held from the home of his grandfather, L. S. Ingram, with interment at Oak Grove cemetery, Tuesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. The services were conducted by Rev. A. S. Woodard of the Methodist church of Clarinda. Four uncles of the child acted as pallbearers. He has gone from us leaving only a beautiful memory of love. A flower taken in the early time, as such will we always remember our darling.
We kissed our little darling As we laid him down to sleep,
And closed his snowy eyelids,
Through which the smiles would peep.
We closed the icy fingers
Which always clung so sweet;
And kissed our Darling Baby, as We gave him to God to keep. PAGE COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Clarinda, Iowa, May 9, 1916
