Moments in Time

I am currently scanning some negatives

from my grandfather that are almost 100 years old.

Rev. & Mrs. C.E.W. Smith

I was scratching around on Google just now and found this:
PHILLIPS -- On the 16th day of October, 1880, Grace
May PHILLIPS, daughter of A.J. and Louella M. PHILLIPS.
Little Gracie was born March 19, 1879. She has gone to join her little brother Charlie, whose obituary stands next above, and who just before he died, said "look papa, look," pointing around as if seeing a vision in which he thought he recognized his little sister, "there's Gracie May." Gracie died after 4 days' illness, or congestion of the lungs. We deeply sympathize with the bereaved parents, in the loss of both of their dear children. They have none left to cheer their home. We knew them and loved them. But who loves like a father
or mother? May they go to Him whose mission is to bind up the
broken heart and healthe wounded spirit. --C.E.W. SMITH
