On the 3rd day of October, 1918, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ira Peevy and took from them their darling son, Charlie.

He was 18 years, one week, and one day old when he died. Was sick only two days with hemorrhagic fever. All was done for him that loving hands could do, but God saw best to take him home to dwell with him.

Oh, how hard it was to part with him. He was so good and kind to everybody and was a good, kind, and obedient child to his father and his mother. Oh, how hard to know that we can no more hear those steps coming or those sweet words. We always could hear him singing as he went about his work. His last words were I am going to rest, and we feel sure our loss is his eternal gain.

He joined the Baptist Church at Hickory Grove about three years before his death and was a faithful member. He always loved his Sunday School.

He is greatly missed at dear old Bethlehem Church where his dear body is resting awaiting the rest of the poor, broken-hearted family.

He leaves a Father and Mother, five sisters, and two brothers to mourn the loss and lots of friends and relatives to grieve and mourn after the dear flower that is gone.

Our home is so sad and lonely without our dear Charlie and oh, that vacant place is still which nothing can ever fill.

He is sleeping, calmly sleeping;
In a newly made grave today;
We are weeping and weeping,
For the darling is gone away.

His loving Mother and Sister
