"Transcript of the above obituary"

Title: Obituary.


Percy Lee, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Lorenzo Westover, was born near Farmington, Mo., May 7, 1917, and died of whooping-cough at their home near Knob Lick, Apr. 20, 1923, aged 5 years, 11 months and 13 days.

He leaves a father, mother, three brothers and a host of other relatives to mourn his passing away.

The family is bowed in grief but we commend them to Him who said, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

"We had a little treasure once, He was our joy and pride; We loved him, ah, perhaps too well, For soon he slept and died."

"All is dark within our dwelling, Lonely are our hearts to-day; For the one we loved so dearly, has forever gone away."

The little body was laid to rest in Masonic cemetery at Farmington, Mo., services being conducted by Rev. Thogmorton.
