His death came almost instant- ly when he entered a partially fil- led silo at his farm home last Wednesday morning. The ensil- age ]~ad settled below the ~la$~ open door in which space a deadly gas had formed. A playmate was the only eye witness to the trag- edy and he called for help, but before the little body could be re- moved life was gone. Doctors rushed to the scene and all that human hands could do was done in hope of reviving what possibly might be left of life but all to no avail. Larry was a bright and playful boy, unusually trustworthy for a boy of seven, affectionate, respect- ful and obedient to his parents and friendly towards everyone. He ]eaves to mourn his early departure, besides his father and mother, two brothers, Gilbert Leon, age 4, and Wallace James who is one and o~ ye~m of age. His grJ~&father and grand.. mother, A~ and Nannie Yoder Gingerich, his foster grandmother, Mrs. Katie ~taztzman, and great- grandmother, Mrs. Malinda Yoder, and many near relatives and friends to whom his passing came as a great shock never to be for- gotten. "God Bless the little feet that never go astray, though the ~ittle shoes are in the closet laid away: And though we feel a sense of bitterness and pain, as sharp as ever when it cut our heart in twain: And though the blinding tear- drops wet the little shoes as old; We know our darlings feet are treading streets of Gold. Oh the bitterness of parting can never be done away, until we meet our darling walking where his feet can never stray. When we no more are drifting upon the surging tide, but with him have safely landed ~pon the other side. heart, while waiting, the shining way, for the in the golden street can never go astray." CARD OF THANKS We wish to take this oppertat* nity to express our deepest apprec- iation, and gratitude to our many friends and neighbors who so kindly and ably assisted us after the very sudden death of our son and brother.
