IN MEMORIUM

Mary (Bush) Parker - born September 28, 1881 - died February 18, 1909 - wife of W. W. Parker

After a nine days attack of pneumonia, on Thursday, February eighteenth, Mrs. Mary Parker, wife of W. W. Parker, was relieved of her suffering and called to the home prepared for the Heavenly Father, where suffering and sorrow are unknown. She was patient and bore her suffering as only a true Christian can. Many physicians were consulted, everything that science or love, skill or wisdom could suggest was done for her, but all in vain, for the hour had come.

She leaves a kind and devoted husband, five children, mother, father, sister, brothers and a host of friends to mourn her loss.

She was a true and noble wife, a kind and loving mother and her memory will be an inspiration to all who knew her. To her loved ones there should come the comforting thought that she is not lost, but only gone on before. And weep not as those who have no hope, but lift your eyes heavenward for your ge? is safe in heaven. She paid the debt we all must pay. God's will be there, the memory of loved ones departed.

She was tenderly laid to rest in the cemetery at Atoka, surrounded by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.

We may not know why death should come
To take the dear ones from our home.
And though our eyes with tears are dim,
The Lord knows why; we'll trust in him.

Just now we cannot understand
The leading of our father's hand;
We know to all he has the key,
And understands each mystery;
The Lord knows why; We'll trust in Him.

On, friends, He knows, the Lord knows why,
These things are ordered from the sky,
And though dark clouds may hide the sun,
The Lord knows why, His will be done.
A Friend.
(Coleman Voice, Coleman, Texas, February 26, 1909.)
