Recently the old newspapers from our small town
were put online. So I have been doing a bit of research
on the family that homesteaded our land and built
the limestone house that still stands here.
I was so pleased to find their daughter, Alice's,
obituary and read more about her. She died in 1946.
"Alice as she was known to this community was born and
spent her whole life on the farm, homesteaded by her father.
A quiet kind and faithful wife, ever ready to do her part.
The last two years of her life were years of suffering.
It was then she sought comfort in God's word.
God in his mercy spoke to her soul.
When her friends told her, they were praying for her,
she expressed her gratitude to them."
It will be interesting to visit with her in heaven someday!
