He was a typical husband, a dear, good father; always willing and anxious to lend help to wife and children. He will be greatly missed by his family. He was always a help to the sick of the locality. He leaves to morn him, a wife, two daughters; Flora T. Ricketts of Sugar Grove, Ohio, and Eva Wallace of Seattle, Washington; four sons, Harrison L., LeRoy H., John D., all of Iowa, and Earl G. of Kiowa, Kansas. He also leaves thirteen grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. Poem- - And now from out of glory, In living clouds of light, The old, familiar faces com, Beaming on Father's sight; The early lost, the early loved, The friends of long ago -- Companions of his pilgrimages and conflicts here below. They parted here in weakness, In suffering, and in gloom, They meet amid the freshness, Of Heaven's immortal boon, Henceforth in ever-during bliss, To wonder hand in hand, Beside the living waters, Of the still and sinless land. There is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign; Infinite day excluded the night, And pleasures banish pain.
