"James D Woods was born October 8, 1886, fell asleep October 22, 1904. 
He gave his heart to Christ five years ago.  He was an obedient son, a loving
brother, an earnest Christian. As a member of my Sunday School class in
Parkland Church, he was an inspiration to me, a benediction to the class. 
We miss his bright face and earnest prayers, but remember the trusting faith
 which enabled him to say, 'Whatever comes to me, I am ready.'  May God
comfort and sustain his loved ones, enabling them through grace to meet
him in the better land."  Mrs. J W Slaughter
