UMSTOTT, Hazel Irene (same as above Child of Mr. & Mrs. Burke Umstot)

Hazel Irene, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Berkeley Umstott, recently ?, age of 1 year, 2 months and 2 days, passed from earth to the arms of the real Child lover. With the bereaved parents we weep our tears and try to write for them the sympathy we feel. The obsequies are passed, but still they touch a silent, sacred cord in memory. The little form with a beauty unmarred by death, lay in a white organdy like a carved image on marble, a white carnation in the shapely hand, the couch casket, the lovely flowers, the white clad pall bearers, the careful undertaker, the gathering of friends, who felt and looked a sympathy which they could not express, the minister who dedicated the soul to Heaven and the body to the dust, the little grave in Mt Zion cemetery, all have a place in the minds archives never to be removed. But there is to this heart piercing sorrow a bright immortal side. The fond parents can allow their minds to dwell upon what she has escaped by her early departure. Had she lived on she would have had the common experience of mortals. She would have been required to mourn over sins and shed the tears of penitence. She would have wrestled hard with flesh and blood even as we do now. She would have experienced many sorrows, she would have loved dear ones and felt the anguish often of parting at the grave. But such experiences she is not now to know. Hers is the victory without the battle. She has entered into rest without even having toiled. Oh sorrowing ones, consider for a moment where your child is and what she is, with her nothing can ever go wrong. Her security is eternal. While we are trudging along through the wilderness, she has entered the promised land. In the immortal hymn which the white souled saints chant around the throne of God, you may hear the voice of Hazel, your own child, and reflect that she is your contribution to the happiness of Heaven. Though our hearts are filled with sorrow and our eyes with tears, how thankful we should be to our loving Savior who has shed the light of immortality upon the grave of little children and of whom He has said so tenderly "Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven". May the Savior of our little children be our Savior that in death and trough death and after death our portion maybe with Him.
