The Life of Clyde Raymond Lorimer
Clyde Raymond Lorimer, the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Lorimer, died Tuesday morning, May 21, at the age of six days. A short funeral service was conducted from the home this (Wednesday) morning, May 22, and the little body was laid to rest in the Olathe cemetery.
The sunshine of love could not warm him to life nor the affection of parenthood beguile him from drooping. His breath went out like the exhalation of a sweetly fragrant flower and in his stead was left only a holy and beautiful memory - a memory that will last as long as parental existence. May God's purest angels guard his slumbers. Mr. and Mrs. Lorimer have the sympathy of the entire community in the loss of their first-born.
