"This lovely bud, so "young and fair,
Called hence to early doom,
Just came to show how sweet a
In paradise could bloom."
Sophronia Cordelia Stuecklin was
born in Watson, Mo., August 8, 1908,
and died at her home in Plattsmouth,
after an illness of only a few days,
May 1, ldlCt. Everything that lov
ing hands-" couid do was done, but
Cod knew best, and called the little
sufferer home. She was very patient
Mid her last hours were of thoughts
of her schoolmates, often mentioning
names of those dear to her. She will
be greatly missed by the teacher and
schoolmates from the little school
which she attended so faithfully, as
well as in the home circle. This is
ever sad for the parents, whose home
has been visited by the death angel
three times in less than six months.
The community extends its deepest
sympathy to the wounded hearts in
their hour of affliction.
Earth has lost its look of gladness,
Heaven seems to us more bright,
Since the spirit of our dear one
Took its happy homeward flight;
And we long to cross the river,
Long to rest upon that shore,
There to know and see and love them
With the Sayior ever "more.
Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er.
On the border land we left her,
Soon to meet ami part no more.
When our life of toil is ended,
When we leave this world of care.
We shall find our missing loved one
In our Father's mansion fair.
'Tis hard to break the tender cord
When love has bound the heart;
Tis hard, so hard, to speak the words.
"We must forever part."
Dearest Frona, we must lay thee
In the peaceful grave's embrace,
But the memory will be cherished
Till we see thy heavenly face.
