Glenn Rhodes

Aged 2 years, 5 months and 11 days. On March 22 the hearts of Bro. and Sister Rhodes were saddened by the (rest of sentence obliterated) ... Dr. R.R. Rhodes and wife watched over their child for near eight months before his decease. May the parents remember that Glenn has passed from suffering of body into the happy spirit land. It was sad for them to give him up, but sweet must be the thought of his happiness. " A bud of beauty nipt by death! Oh, no, but upward borne, where no rude wind or poisoned breath can blast a flower of paradise." "Though earth may boast one gem the less, may not e'en heaven the richer be?" May God shower his richest benediction upon the sad ones.
R.D. Wilson
Arkansas Baptist, June 2, 1897, page 15
