Ira Lee Earl

At Rector, Ark., May 7, 1890, Ira Lee Earl, infant son of E.B. and Clennie Earl.

While loving parents and kind friends were tenderly watching over the little form of Ira Lee Earl, son
of E. B. and Clennie Earl, the gate of heaven was opened and the pure little spirit of the sweet little boy passed out of the body into the brighter and better beyond. Parents, look up, your child is not dead, but absent. Oh, may God's grace lead you to consecrate yourselves to him and his service, that when the time comes for you to go there will be one little boy at the beautiful gate waiting and watching to welcome you home.
