"We are brought face to face with life's inevitable fact: the brevity of our days here together. We children of this earth must soon learn to know that the ,sun goes down upon every life: that each life has a closing chapter, last page. We have no rule nor power to say that each of us shall live to be 70 or 80 years of age ere we, too, shall step beyond into God's eternity. Death is no stranger; we are ever in its presence as we are in the air we breathe. Like the morning sun it is with us today; it shall be so, as well on the morrow. "It is true we were friends," said Mr. Kampen, "not alone did we salute each other as brother--spend the time of life's brief day together in pleasant conversation, but we two sat down together at the great banquet and here in the midst of so much which is imperfect and surrounded by all which is dying daily, we read God's word of life abundant and joy made perfect. As Ships pass. "Our lives were as ships which passed in the night--a salute--a smile--a prayer, and then his life steered into port beyond my vision." Pallbearers were Bert Rule, 0. M. Iverson, Leroy Thompson, Carl Parker, Herman Knudson and Charles Clark. Burial was at Elmwood cemetery. FINED $10.
