Note:   December 25, 1904 In Memory Of J. S. Cunningham And His Daughter Littitia Somewhere in this favored land of ours Xmas morning dawned joyfully, Fathers and Mothers, no doubt, sat watching their loved ones, as they gaily celebrated the birth of the son of God in different ways. But in one sweet home at Wallonia grim sadness reigned supreme. In one room our sweet sister struggled and gasps for life. Oh, how she battled with the grim monster death, patiently and without a murmur, while the distracted family bent over her bed, vainly praying for some change for the better, while ever and anon the physicians gravely shook their heads and said ?No hope!? All day the watchers waited in breathless suspense until just at 9:00 p.m. she closed her eyes gently and her innocent soul rushed into the arms of the awaiting angels and was born softly but swiftly to the pearly gates of heaven and receive by the Prince of Glory, with whom it is to share the blessings of God forever more. But oh, how sweet rending it was to see that tender form embraced by the cold arms of death, just as she was beginning to taste the blessings of life but we must bow beneath the burden and only say, ?God?s will be done.? And besides we have the greatest of consolations in these words: ?Soon shall we meet again ? Me ne?re to sever. Soon will peace wreathe her chain ?Round us forever.? But sweet little sister, we thought it hard to part with all the sweet remembrances which hover about thee, but thou are not destined to sleep long in lonely solitude for they earthly father and ours shell soon follow they tender footsteps to the grave, to walk and journey with you in all your wanderings through the happy home which has been promised us by our father. On the 28th of December our father passed away on the soft rays of the midday sun, and once more the pearly gates swept back and the voice of God called out to the innocent soul of one of his true followers on earth, ?Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter now into the joys of they Lord.? Oh, what rejoicing there must have been when the soul was clasped in the happy embrace of friends who have long since gone before. I cannot grieve for him, for great must be the pleasure of an eternal life in the mansions which our Father in heaven has prepared for us, ?that where He is, there we may be also,? to live and share the glory of God with Him, though ?All the plans of life are broken, All the hopes of life are fled, Counsel comfort and adviser, Alas! Alas1 for thou art dead.? To all friends and acquaintances who mourn the loss of our loved ones, I entreat you to bear up and try to comfort your own souls, for God be praised, theirs are at rest so I can only say. Dens Vobiscum. ENOCH D. CUNNINGHAM (Trigg County Historical Clippinga, Vol 6)
