Resolutions of Respect.
Whereas, In God's wisdom, Hc-
has Been proper to call from earth to
heaven our beloved sister, Mrs. S. B.
Be it resolved: First, that the
Sunday School has lost a faithful
teacher, whose every desire was to
the will of the Master, and whose-
labors of love aud devotion in pro-
moting the interest of the Sunday
school, was a part of her life work,
and for which we will cherish her
memory as one we dearly loved.
Second: That the Methodist Epis-
copal church, south, will feel her loss
deeply; for wheuever there was work
to do in the church she was always
ready, and her life was filled with
deeds of kindness and love; always
remembering the poor and distressed,
and ready to lend a helping hand:
| and the good influence left b hind,
j will be felt long after the 11 iwers
| bloom above her Bleeping dust.
I hird: That we bow in submission
to the deviue will, knowing ti,at God
. doith all tilings well, and that while
our hearts are bowed in sorrow, she
, is basking in the sunlight of His
lov • in the realms i i et. i n. I bliss.
Fourth: That a copy of tl.sC
, resolutions be seut to the family ut ;
the deceased, and a c ;.y >-,.1,1 to the
| Lexington Leader for publication.
