THE WESTERN STAR, 27 May 1893
Obituary of HENRY COCHRAN
OBITUARY

The grim old family clock had just struck ten when an angel, though invisible, was speeding on and on past suns, moons and mists of cloud in search of a jewel so rich as to be of priceless value.

He searched the planets all save Earth and at last here he came on the 23rd day of the month of flowers. He found the precious object of his search, little Henry, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Cochran and took him and bore him away through the twilight valley and the shadow of the river and at last thundered at the gates of St. Peter. The gates swung ajar and the angel entered into paradise.

Sweet songs such as angels sing welcomed them. Through the light all tinted and golden songs soothed the air. Deft fingers swept over harps strung with the golden hair of angels and the notes sent forth words of welcome soft, low and sweet. Myriads of angels followed then in procession to the Palace of the King, who received them saying: "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the
Kingdom of Heaven."

Little Henry had parted with father, mother, sister, brother and playmates at the gate of death - he had received their blessings there and now was in Heaven. T. E. W.
