Arthur Wayne Berry

Born in Little Rock, July 31, 1883; died at home , January 13, 1897. Wayne was a gentle boy-chaste, truthful and conscientious. Before Jesus called him to the "upper fold," he imparted to him the brightest assurance of saving grace. During his week of suffering the Savior never once left his side. His memoirs are inscribed upon our hearts in characters that time shall not dim. As he dipped his feet in the waters , he triumphantly exclaimed " O.. that beautiful land" and with a smile that faded not in death, took his flight to God.
