Infant of Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Richardson Passed Away

The two days old baby boy born to Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Richardson Friday night passed away like a fragile flower not destined to unfold, at three o'clock Sunday morning. From the first the attending physician perceived the little one would not live.

A few friends gathered at the home where an appropriate funeral service was conducted by Rev. Philip Koenig of Ontario who spoke very touchingly of the mission of the life so short but fulfilled according to God's purpose and Rev. J. J. Tickner, both intimate friends of the bereaved parents. The young mother who is a devout Christian woman, listened to the service from her room and viewed the sweet baby face, reconciled to deliver it to the great Kingdom from whence it came.
