Death Invades The Home of Mr. Jerry Burnett

   God, in His infinite wisdom, has seen fit to take from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Burnett their brightest dower and idol of their hearts, and sore and desolate are these sorrowing parents. For several days before the end it was feared that the little life was to be cut short, but the fond and parents devotedly and patiently waited on their baby and all that mortals could possibly do was done for the little one, but to no avail.
   The little boy, Arthur Earl, was nearly one year old and had already wound himself tightly around the heartstrings of his parents and it seemed as though they could not give him up. This moment the little life was there and the next, death had silently entered and taken the little spirit back to the God who gave it
   Seven times has the death angel entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. Burnett, each time carrying away with him one of their children. Truly the ways of Providence are inscrutable and in the midst of life we are in death. Source: Ocala Banner: 11-6-08
