January 1925

     Whereas, it has pleased our heavenly father in his all wise providence to permit the earthly life of our dear sister, Mrs. George Scutt, to cease on the twenty-first day of January, 1925. We the members of the Ladies’ Aid Society of the Franklinton M. P. church have
     Resolved that we bow in humble submission to the Devine will in calling our sister from her earthly duties to her eternal reward.

     To the sorrowing family we extend our deepest and most sincere sympathies in the hour of their great sorrow, but we assure them that he who has promised never to leave or forsake looks down with infinite compassion on the loved and sorrowing ones, and as a loving father He will guide and protect those who trust in Him.
     Resolved, that these resolutions be placed in the secretary’s book and published in the local papers and a copy be mailed to the loved ones, as a testimony of our sincere sympathy and esteem.
