Death’s Sad Doings

Manie Lillian, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Orval West, of this city, died Sunday morning at four o’clock, of inflammation of the stomach, after an illness of a little over one week, aged three years, six months, and twenty-eight days. The funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon at three o’clock and were conducted by Rev. C. D. Hestwood, of the Methodist church.

Six of little Manie’s playmates, Elsie Boyd, Lulu Shoup, Clara Swan, Bernice Wygles, Edna Jordan and Mabel Haun, acted as pall-bearers, and each brought a beautiful floral token to place upon the casket of their little friend. In addition to these there were numerous other floral tributes presented by sympathizing friends and relatives. The remains were laid to rest in the Larned Cemetery.

In the death of their only child, who was a bright, beautiful little girl, with sunny hair and a sweet gentle disposition, Mr. and Mrs. West have the sincere sympathy of all who knew them. Only parents whose hopes and aspirations are centered in an only child, can appreciate how deep and poignant is the grief of these afflicted parents, and that only God is capable of alleviating their sorrow.
