Long - Herman

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday, 22 March 1901
On March 18, 1901, the dark angel death crept silently into the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Long and came for Herman, their little son, aged two months and sixteen days. We know dear parents it was sad for you to give up your little darling whom you loved so well, but we will say, weep not, for your loss is heaven’s gain. Little Herman was too sweet an angel to dwell on earth, hence the Lord called him to reign in heaven, where there will be no sickness nor death and where we will never say “goodbye.” Remember what our Savior said while here on earth, “Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God,” and that a band of little angels who never knew sin were with Jesus to welcome your little darling home. Parents, relatives and friends did all in their power to keep little Herman with them, but all their faithfulness proved futile. He will be greatly missed. – thanks to S for this one
