Death of a Child

Clifford Turner Martin, the little six year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Martin, died Saturday afternoon, April 9th, 1921 at about two o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Carvill [Carvell] near Buhler.  There are may flowers in every home. Some bloom longer than others, but not more beautiful. But you know God controls the flowers that bloom so lovely today, and tomorrow are cast into the fire. Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow "they toil not, neither do they spin." They are beautiful and sweet, and "even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these." But there is nothing more glorious nor more holy than a dear sweet child which God has given to bless the home. If ever a child blessed a home little Clifford did. As this sweet flower blessed the home here and all of its friends so it will bless heaven.  Why God called it home no one knows, but we know that God's ways are best. So we bade him good-bye that he might go home to glory to be with God and the angels.  --Contributed.
