WILT, T. J.

The death angel came as an unwelcome visitor to the home of Mary M. Wilt, of Headsville, W. Va., and claimed as its victim, her bosom friend and companion, T. J. Wilt. Heart failure was the cause of his sad taking away. He was buried in the Headsville cemetery by his darling child, who preceded him two short years ago. The funeral services were conducted by Rev Arnold, of the Brethren church, of which he was a member. The funeral was in charge of the Undertaker Miller. The bereaved family wishes to thank their good neighbors and friends for their kindness in their sad bereavement. Oh, may our Great Physician heal the stroke which death has made, for He has promised that He will never leave or forsake us, and give us grace sufficient to bear our burdens, and to tide us over the life's temptuous sea because we know we have no abiding city her, but we seek one to come. So let us take Jesus as our patron and live a life of holiness that when the trumpet sounds we may hear the voice which says, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joys of the Lord." He was a good neighbor, a kind husband and a loving father. He leaves to mourn their loss a wife, two sons, and two daughters, and eight grandchildren. He was one of eight brothers, all of whom, excepting one, James Wilt of Westernport Md, have gone before him and he is very ill at the present time.
How slender is life's silver cord,
  How soon 'tis broken here;
Each moment brings a parting word
  And many a falling tear.
And though these years to mortals given
  Are filled with grief and pain,
There is hope - the hope of Heaven,
  Where loved ones meet again.
Oh, glorious morning, quickly come
  And wake this slumbering clay;
Touch these pale lips, so cold and dumb,
  With thine immortal ray.
Unconscious now in peaceful sleep,
  From all his cares at rest<
 While friends around us are called to weep,
  He is divinely blessed.
Away from Satan's tempting snares,
  His faith no longer tried.
In Jesus he is sleeping there;
  For in bright hope he died.
  A Sister
