H. F. Buckner

Our own dear brother is no more of this world; he has gone to our Father's house above, where the blessed Savior has prepared many mansions for the redeemed. Thank God for the Christian's hope in this world and his home beyond.
He died at 3 o'clock a.m. December 2, and was buried on Monday Dec. 4, at 3 p.m. We knew nothing of it till after his dear body had been deposited in the grave, being away from home and beyond the reach of the telegram, promptly sent, notifying us of his dangerous sickness, and saying "come at once." A messenger was dispatched but failed to reach us. We can say no more as we go to press. But we beg the sympathies and prayers of our brethren, especially his dear family; a wife, two daughters and four sons, the oldest son being only about nine years old.

Arkansas Evangel, December 14, 1882
