Card of Thanks

   We wish to express our thanks for and arreciation of the faithful assistance rendered us during the illness of our daughter and sister and for the sympathy shown us in her death.
Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Rhoads and children
  Wilmyrith Rhoades was born near Grainville, Hunt county, Texas, on Sept. 27, 1894, and died Monday, Nov. 29, 1909. Funeral services were conducted from the home Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, and interment made at the Allendale cemetery.
   She was a member of the Lincoln Valley school and Sunday School, and though not identified with any church organization hers was a noble christian character. She was known at school as an industrious, obedient, helpful student, and by all her associates as a sincere and trusted friend. At home, she was a loving, patient sister, a dutiful and devoted daughter.
   After an illness of one brief week the summons came, and all that was mortal of Wilmyrith Rhoades was laid to rest. But Wilmyrith has passed on to a life where sickness and death do not come, and where she is waiting to welcome father, mother, grandmother, brothers, and baby sister, whose hearts are sore that her place in the home is vacant. We grieve to see one so young and hope of life stricken down, but Thy will, O Father, not ours, be done.

"Weep for me tenderly; for I,
Were you lying here in my place,
Would press my warm lips on your brow
And rain the hot tears on your face.

"And when this body's laid away,
I'd have you my low earth-bed make
All fresh with grass and sweet with flowers,
And sacred for old time's sake.

"But then sweet friends, look up and on,
Let sunshine all the clouds break through;
And do not for my sake forget
What for the living you should do.

"Let not the shadow of my loss
Darken the path the living tread;
But let the memories of my past
Still cheer and help, though I am dead.

"So, from the grave I still may speak,
Still help the sorrowing world to bless;
Still live though dead, and swell the tide
Of human hope and happiness."
