Sula Colquitt

Sula, youngest daughter of J.W. and Mollie Colquitt died at her home at Alexander September 11, 1891. Age four years, eight months and fourteen days.
Her funeral was preached by her pastor at 4 o'clock the same date. A large concourse of mourning and sympathizing friends followed the remains to their last resting place. Our heavenly father by this sad dispensation has removed our dear little Sula. Those who knew her could not but love her. She always met us with a bright smile, and her many kind baby words. A more pleasant little associate would be hard to find. She was always in her seat in the church at my services. Let me say dear brother and sister, your pastor will miss her bright little face, and I join with you in the deep sorrow over your loss. I pray you be reconciled to his will. Let us not grieve as those who have no hope for if we are faithful we shall see her again beyond the river on the golden shore, where parting and sorrow will be no more. Your Pastor. W. L. Dale
