MR. J. & SEARS GOES HENCE In loving memory of my dear father, Mr. J. B. Sears, who departed this life Thursday. April 23rd, 1931, at his home in McKinney..aged 75 years and 23 days. Dear daddy had suffered a paralytic paralytic stroke about two year ai?o and had been bedfast for about six months. During all this, time he was never eyes to open them- them- in heaven. He was a member of the Christian church .at East Onion, Nicholas county. Dear daddy leaves to mourn his loss a devoted devoted wife and four children, as follows: follows: Mrs. Archie Atkins, Stanford; Mrs. Sam Johnson and Eddie and Willie Willie Sears, who reside with the parents. Also he leaves one sister, Mrs. W. C. Coy.. and one brother, Mr. J. A. Sears. Daddy was laid to rest .in the old Mc-Cormack Mc-Cormack Mc-Cormack church burying ground. Just two weeks ago today since dear daddy passed away. I saw him suffer, heard his sighs, with aching heart and weeping weeping eyes. I saw him sinking hour by hour, yet couldn't stay death's awful power, but now he calmly sleeps at lsst, all pains, all aches, all suffering past, Just a fetf days ago we laid him to rest and folded his cold hands upon his breast. In silence he suffered In patience he bore, until God called him home to suffer no moie. Sadly miss ed by one who loved him dearly. Mrs. Archie Atkins.
