The Wilmore News, June 30, 1939.


Robert Wayland Pitman

Robert Wayland, infant son of Rev. and Mrs. F. Russell Pitman, was "still born" at 5:30 o'clock Sunday morning in the Ashland hospital. Brief and impressive services were conducted beside the grave in Wilmore Sunday afternoon by Rev. Al Joe Watters of Greensburg. Besides the parents, he is survived by one sister, Juanita Belle, and his maternal grandparents. Our Lord said : "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God."

Rev. and Mrs. Pittman and Juanita have the sympathy of the entire community in their sorrow.
