Little Russell, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Mote, died on Friday evening, January 8, at their home in Van Wert. For two short weeks he had been the light of the home but was suddenly taken away, leaving his young parents bereft and heart broken.
Funeral services were held at the home, conducted by Reverend A.B. Cornell, after which the loved form was laid to rest in the cemetery near by. The grief sticken parents are assured of the sympathy of scores of friends in this, their great sorrow and will be greatly comforted in knowing that neither sickness nor sorrow can touch their loved one who is now "Safe in the arms of Jesus," and waiting to greet them over there. Yes, we'll meet them in that city That is just across the strand And our hearts will leap with rapture When they take us by the hand Oh, I know that we shall know them Though their Heavenly robes they wear They will bid us welcome ever We shall know our loved ones there
