SECOND .TRAGEDY IN EIGHT TAKES LIFE OF JULIAN R, SHULLI TO THE FAMILY OF JANICE L AND JULIAN RAY SHULL With anguish in your hearts you cry Oh Lord, what have we done To lose first Our Darling Daugh- ter And so soon Our Beloved Son? Our hearts were torn asunder Only a few short days ago And now the wounds are re-op- ened ! How much grief can a heart know ? Dear Friends: God only loaned you Two treasures, precious and rare, When "He" sent these souls to earth To be nurtured by your loving care ! "He" placed, in "HIS" infinite wis- dom This trust, for well He knew, Their souls would be righteously guided By the love of two people like you ! And although we know not "His" reason For the return'of these souls to "His" keep, Do not let your hearts be troubled That God has willed them to sleep ! "Hi" voice they have sweetly obeyed As each name "He" called soft and clear, Loving memories to keep them near ! Only time can soften the ache in your hearts And ease GrteI's terrible pain; But remember "His" promise -- Believe in me And ye shall all meet again." Take your Strength from His lov- ing mercy. Turn your faith to "His" own Son, Remembering to whisper, -- Not mine, Oh Lord, but Thy'will be done !
