H. T. Beene Dead
H.T. Beene, the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. R.S. Beene of Wattsville community passed from this life May 21, 1933, at Dr. Joe Becton's hospital in Greenville at the tender age of 16, years, 9 months and 24 days. Two summers ago the age of 14 years he united with the Baptist church of Donelton community. He was a very likable youth, always greeting every one with a smile and a cheerful word. He took part in all the community sports, especially baseball. His vacancy will never be filled on the baseball team. It is useless for us to ask the loved ones not to grieve, but we have consolation of knowing that he was prepared for a better place. He is out of his suffering pain and great sorrow of this earth. Sometimes, we may think God is unjust, but He always knows best and will never burden us with too heavy a load. H.T. was survived by ten brothers and sisters and four who preceded him in death. The body was brought from Stringers Funeral Home Monday. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at the family home conducted by Rev. Lee Bloodsworth of County Line community. The remains were laid to rest at the Lone Star cemetery at Point.
