Stell on October 25, 1902. Charley, their beloved son, was called from this earth to a higher and better home. His death came sooner than we expected, resulting from that most dreadful disease, typhoid fever. His home previous to his death was at Horn Beck, La. There he was sick several weeks. His father thought it best to bring him home, for Charley thought if he could get home to mother he would get well. But, alas! in three days after his arrival the God of Heaven thought best to take him higher, that he, laying his life down, might bring us closer to Him that knows all things best. Charley had many friends, he being such a bright, good-hearted little fellow, made all who knew him love him. He was 23 years of age, just in the bloom of manhood. Oh! how hard to think that one so young and bright should depart this life so soon. But the young die as well as the old; so take courage, father, mother, brothers and sisters, and get ready to meet dear Charley in Heaven. His Uncle Dave. ____________________________________________________________________________ Bible of Faydra Starnes, Houston, Texas, 1976. ____________________________________________________________________________ HTML file and design by David Kelley, 1997.
