BOATRIGHT, Holman
EDWARDS, Kate

Kate Edwards (colored) was found in a stupor lying on the floor of her home late Monday afternoon. She died soon after being found. It is thought that she had been lying on the floor since early morning as she was dressed only in her sleeping clothes. She lived alone in a house on the rear of the lot of Mrs. C. M. Maddocks who went to the house to investigate after not having seen anyone on the premises all day. A physician was called but he could do nothing to revive the woman. Friends took charge of the remains and the funeral was held at the colored church Wednesday afternoon. The deceased was one of the oldest citizens of Davis. A coincidence in her death was the death also of her lover, Holman Boatright, of Thomas, who died the same day and in the same manner.

As I sit in Heaven and watch you every day,
I try to let you know with signs I never went away.
I hear you when you’re laughing and watch you as you sleep.

I even place my arms around you to calm you as your weep.
I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home.
So I try to send you signs to you know you are not alone.
Don’t feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me.
Heaven is truly beautiful – Just you wait and see.
So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free.
Then I know with every breath you take, you’ll be taking one for me.
