Tama County Iowa Obituaries

Ezra T. Parks

Ezra T. Parks, a young man in the 23rd year of age was called to his rest on the evening of July 24. He was born in Tama, Iowa, July 25th, 1867. In his sickness which lasted about three months, he was patient and to his friends he expressed his consciousness of pardon and acceptance by his Saviour. His mourning mother bore his remains to the old home in Iowa that they might lie beside those of his father who died April 6, 1890. In her double sorrow Mrs. Parks has the tender sympathy of a large circle of friends and neighbors.

Under her brother Ezra's obituary my grandmother added this poem:

"Under the roses no secret
Dearest have I to tell
For all the world and the roses
Know that I love thee well!"
