Willis Harris youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Helfritz was born August, 19th, 1924 and passed away January 1st 1927, thus having lived 2 years, 4 months and 13 days.
The dear little boy stayed on this earth long enough to bind himself to the hearts of the family and to them it is a sad loss. But when time shall have eased their sorrow they will be able to feel and say, "It is well with the child."
He leaves to mourn his loss, his parents, three sisters and three brothers; namely Hazel, Gladys and Lois Russell, Otto and Delmer.
