Boone Prothro

Boone, youngest son of Bro. W.W. Prothro and Sister E. Prothro, died at the residence of his father, October 6, 1895, aged eleven years. The angel of death loves a shining mark, so he selected our dear little Boone. Our Master gave the dear child to brighten their home a few years and then he took the treasure of this household to his beautiful home on high. "Where the treasure is there the heart will be also." And now heaven is nearer, the way is brighter and sweeter, because of such jewels, he has changed a world of trials for one of peace - no longer of earth but all of heaven a transplanting of the sweet little bud to bloom in Paradise. God grant that we may be ready when the summons comes to meet the Lord in the air.
"Loved one we shall meet thee in that sunbright clime,
And each other greet, beyound the flight of time.
Yes, we want to meet you, meet to part no more,
And be there to greeet you on the other shore."
Arkansas Baptist, November 27, 1895, page 15
