Nannie Jordan

Nannie Jordan, daughter of E. J. Jordan, died at her home in Fordyce, Ark., December 21, 1896. Her death was sudden and shocked relatives and friends. We have lost an earnest and devoted Christian from our church. For over six years she was true to every duty. Her mother being an invalid required Nannie's presence at her bedside. Our young people will miss her counsel and her consecrated life will be an incentive to them. As the writer conducted the obsequies, he could see that all the young people felt their bereavement. We all mourn " but not as those who have no hope" God bless the sorrowing ones and help them to resolve to meet her in a better land.
