Donna Roe, the little twin daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vance Hotson was born Jan. 5th, 1918, and died April 16th, 1919, aged 15 months and 11 days. She leaves to mourn her loss her father, mother, a brother Dale, a sister Wilma, and her little twin brother, Dean Richard. She had been in perfect health, but an attack of heart failure rendered all human aid unavailable, and the suddenness of this sad bereavement has brought a sorrow to the family and the community that only time and faith in the Higher life can heal.

The funeral was held from the house, Friday April 18, a large number being present. Interment was made at Woodbury. Rev. Moe conducted the services, and gave a very touching address.

"Your little darling has gone to dwell with him who gave: a mother's hope, a father's joy in death's cold arm doth lie. God needed one more angel child amidst his shining band, and so he bent with loving smile and clasped your darling's hand."


We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who so kindly assisted and sympathized with us in this our time of sorrow. We are especially grateful to the choir and for the many floral tributes.
Mr. and Mrs. Vance Hotson.
