The passing of Mr. Henry Rainey Jr. has called us together. There is no death. An angel form walks o'er the earth with silent tread, and bears our love ones away; and then we call them dead. But, they are ever near us, though unseen. Their dear immortal spirits tread. For all the boundless universe is life; there is no death. the Giver just takes back his loved ones unto Himself, after they have wrought such beautiful patterns during their sojourn here.
