This is to certify that Lloyd Milton
Norris was born Nov. 5, 1886
died March "?th, 192-1, aged 37 years
Dec. 1-1, 1918 he united with th?
M cat Camp Baptist Church and was
baptised May !7. 1919, from whicl
time he lived a consistent Christi&r
life until death.
Dec. 14, 1910 he and Miss Man

Rroihor Norris leaves a hear
Stricken companion, father, mothe
two sisters and many other heart bri
ken friends to mourn their loss. Bu
we feel that the greatest words Bro
ther Norris ever spoke were whil
?drjgglrng underneath his caw, 44
am ready to go Lord; take me." S
while we mourn his loss we feel tha
bt* is happy in glory. The great pei
sonality of his life made him lovabl
and admirable to all who came in cor
tact with him. To know Brother Noi
lis was to love and admire him. H
was a man who had an unsurpasse
sympathy for those who had been 01
fortunate in life; none more loy.
to his pastor and church, not on]
with his presence almost every seryic
but with his substance also; it loo!
cd as if money was of little or r
value to him in supporting the cau:
of Christ. He neither spared gas m
car service in taking people to ai
from church; he made* it a specialty
to carry the aged and infirm first
; d when the Kittle Ford was not loaded
to its capacity, the children and
others were heartily invited in. The
iul? Tcstam< nt he always carried
was the greatest of all books to hiin
< remember vfith kindness in
our hearts the unsurpassed hospital
itv of Brother and Sister Norris?
how that with a warm hand shake
and a hearty greeting, men. women
and children were invited into the
home, and when once there had a
deep longing to return again. It was
an inspiration to be in the presence
of Brother and Sister Norris.
The writer knows that but few pcc
pie came to his home on foot that
were not carried hack to their home*
in the little Ford. The Company foi
which he worked as traveling salesman
sustained a great loss in hideath.
We realize that the loving
companion, father, mother and rela
tives and church have sustained a fa?
greater loss than his Company.
Will not the Judge of all the earth
do right? We now bow our hearts tc
Him in humble submission. The Lord
giveth and the Lord taketh away
blessed be the name of the Lord.
His Pastor and J. R. Isaacs.
