IN MEMORIAM .
OF JOSHUA ROGERS
On November 28, 1940, the, death
angel
Came and took from us Joshua
Rogers, our frdiend.
He was loved by all who knew
him. 1 .
He was kind and true to everybody.
With a friendly hand and a smile
to add.
He treated all alike. He made both
young and old feel glad.
I thinght a lot of him because he
was" a friend worth while.
But now he has gone across the
vale.
No one can ever fill his place.
I know he is at rest for he said
he was ready and willing to
go.
So I need not mind the days that
seem so dark and' full, of
care.
For just across tomorrow the sun
is shining fair.
I know I will meet him in that
happy home above
With Christ, our Lord, where oil
is love.
A Friend.
