IN MEMORY OF CLOVIS AUSTIN
(Written by a distant relative)
Clovis Austin, son of Mr. and Mrs.
died at the home of his parents near Cloverdale,
Tuesday morning September 11; the interment took
place Wednesday morning in the Austin cemetery,
with the services conducted by Rev. Floyd Olive.
The passing away of this young man is grevious
to mother, father, brother and many friends. Sad, in-
deed, yet, how happy we are to know that he is safe
with Jesus, so let us turn from the darkness that
overshadows us, and look for the joy and comfort
that is found in God's promises.
Clovis has departed from his place on earth and
gone to rest from a valley of tears to a mount of joy,
from a wilderness to a heavenly paradise.
We have our lives before us; once can we live it,
so let us pray for God to kindle in our hearts a burning
desire to live for him each day so that when death
comes to us, we too, will be prepared.
