The death angel came into our midst Saturday morning about 1 o'clock and claimed for his own Grandmother Burges. Grandma Burges had lived in our midst some fifteen or twenty years. She had lived to the ripe old age of 76 years. She leaves two sons and one daughter and quite a number of grandchildren, but the dear mother and grandmother will suffer no more pain in this old world of sorrow. So weep, not dear kindred. Just look and live in the sweet bye and bye our tears of sorrow will be turned to tears of joy. The remains were laid to rest in the Prospect cemetery, Rev. C.M. Martin conducting the funeral service in the presence of quite a few relatives and friends. The grieved ones have the sympathy and prayers of this writer.
