Eulala Sue, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cowan, was born June 5, 1899, died January 18, 1902, aged two years, seven months and thirteen days. Little Sue was a sweet child, possessed of many qualities unsurpassed in one so young, and thrilled the loving parents’ hearts with joy when they would look into the little face which met you with a smile. A bright flower has been taken from us, a treasure that nothing of this earth can restore. For anyone to know “Little Sue” was to love her. It is sad for us to give her up, yet we should remember that our loss is a gain to God. We should realize that the bitterer the cup we taste on this earth the sweeter the cup will be in the “Sweet Bye and Bye.”

The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Cowan died on last Saturday, Jan. 18, with scarlet fever and diphtheria. Little Eulla was a bright little girl. She was two years, seven months old. It seemed as though she suffered death right from the start, the doctor doing all he could to restore little Eulla to health, but all was in vain.
She was laid to rest in the Liberty Cemetery on last Sunday by undertakers Galey and Vancleave, of Wingate. She leaves father, mother, two sisters and a host of friends to mourn for her. But father and mother, don’t grieve; your loss is her gain. She is only waiting to welcome you home where all will be well. -s
