Lawrence Jackson Hasty, Obituary 1910 - Iu Keinoriam. On the evening of June 21, 1910,...
Iu Keinoriam. On the evening of June 21, 1910, the. icy band of death took from earth's rough and uneven way. to the land of rest, from which no one ever returns to tell of the glorv Beyond, Lawrence Jackson Hasty, youngest son rf Geo. E. and Mary A. Hasty. The deceased was born near Mt Car- Car- mel Baptist church Jan. 27, 1877. hie was reared in this community and came to Seaboard as salesman, salesman, some eight years ago. Mr. Hasty was converted when about 14 years old, was baptized into the fellowship of Mt. Car mel Bap tist church and remained an exemplary exemplary member until the close of his, seemingly untimely death. He was ill less than three weeks of an aggravated form of typhoid fever and suffered greatly but complained very little. All that loving hands, the best of physicians physicians and a capable trained nurse could do was done to keep him wkb us, but the Father nad need of him and he went home to endless endless rest. Seaboard, perhaps, could boast of no better citizen than Mr. Lawrence Hasty. Up right, honorable, honest in all his dealings; (industiious, sober, law abiding, conscientious, pru dent and safe. He was yerquiet, reserved and modest, but every inch a man, and under that quiet manner there dwelt a helpful, tender, sympathetic heart, that responded to every call. After becoming a Christian he had every evidence that God's will bad become his jwill, and God's purpose his purpose. Some six years ago, he was very fortunate in securing for a life companion, Miss Mattie Daniel, of Enfield, N. C. He made her a kind, con siderate, faithful husband. As a father he was strict; yet wise. kind and loving in ruling his Lousehold. Mr. Hasty was not an educated man, but wa3 endowed with a large amount of plain, common sense, which enabled him toman age his own and his employer's affairs with precision and accur acy. His end was as peaceful as his life had been, free from hypocrisy hypocrisy and guile. He has been sadly missed by his many friends here and we doubt if his place will ever be filled. He leaves to mourn tbeir loss an aged and very feeble mother, (who still weepj over the first death among ner children,; a gray haired fatnar, heart-broken heart-broken heart-broken wife, two little boys, (Robert and Alvin, aged six and four years,) two brothers and two sisters, sisters, besides other relatives and friends. His remains were laid to rest in a newly made burying ground at his childhood's home, Kind friends covered his mound In beautiful flowers, mute 're minders of how much he was loved and respected here below. To you, dear friends, whoVare crushed at this separation.let me say, your thoughts now are of thebroken-up thebroken-up thebroken-up home, the empty chair, the silent voice. Look for ward. Lawrence cannot return to you but it is your privilege to go to him. May the comforter come down and dwell in your hearts and teach you to look for ward to tbe1 eternal'day in which you will join your loved one.nev er to part again. In that day you .will know why he was called away so young, all tears will be dried, all sorrow forever ended. , "Then we'll understand." . - A Friend. a
