Leon Cook

Died at Buckner, Ark,  April 6, 1897, in his 20th year.  Our hearts are filled with mingled grief and sadness when we consider that Leon is no more, He was always a fond and dutiful son and was loved by his parents, relatives and friends. His brief life was characterized by his child-like simplicity, his great desire to please his parents, his studious effot to avoid all wrong and his earnest desire to learn the teaching of his Savior and to obey his command. He is now asleep.
"Asleep in Jesus, peaceful rest, Whose waking is supremely blest."
Parents, be resigned to the will of Him who doeth all things well. No tongue can express, no pen can write a eulogy for Leon, none is needed; his life speaks for him and his praise.
W. B. Hinton
Arkansas Baptist, April 28, 1897, page 9
