Wilburn Henderson Malone was born August 22, 1896, and died August 26th, 1897, aged 12 months and 4 days. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Beurah Malone. He was sick ten days. He suffered from the time he was taken sick until his death, but bore it like a little man. He has gone to be with his grandfather who crossed over the river two years before him.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the grief-stricken parents, three sisters and one brother. Death seems terrible, but we should humble ourselves to the will of God. May God’s will be done and not ours. Parents do not grieve; your little babe is not dead, but sleeping. Sleep on, little Wilburn, sleep on till we meet again.
