Lucy Alford

Lucy Alford, died at her home in Sparkman, Ark., March 27, 1895. Sister Alford joined the Baptist church while young and lived a consistent member to her death. She was sick several weeks and her sufferings were great, but she bore it patiently. She often spoke of the Christian's hope, and her last words were" Blessed Jesus." She is dead, but lives in her Christian example and in the hearts of those who knew her. May the husband and three grown children find comfort in following the Christ the deceased loved to honor, and the footprints of Jesus will lead them to God,  heaven, wife and mother.
