Laura Coffman

Laura Coffman, Aged 8 months, Died January 5, 1887 at Portia, Arkansas., the writer officiating.
Sad and heart piercing was the scene. A young father and mother grieving for the babe whom God has transferred to the land where separations, trials and sorrows are no more. Rest sweetly, holy one, thou are free from sin. Mourn not, tender parents, the soul liveth! Can we but reach the stage of purity held by that child, Gold will truly say, "Thou good an faithful man, Well done." "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord."
