|The angels have visited the Louisiana Conference and Rev. W. P. Mason
has joined the Church Triumphant, and are now safe at home.
Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on his gentle breast,
Safe from this world's temptations
Sweetly- their souls doth rest."
We sincerely feel the loss caused by the departure of this consecrated men of God, but we humbly bow in submission to His will and we are saying "the will of the Lord be done." Yes, we shall miss him; miss his presence, miss his counsel, but his consecrated influence shall remain and live on and on and will always be an inspiration to us, helping us onward over life's battles.
We commend the example of this noble Christian man to the entire membership of our church and may his sacred sweet memories burn in each heart as long as we are known to time.
We now bid "farewell" until we too shall "all be gathered home."
