  • Notes 
    • MR. AND MRS. GEORGE TURNBULL were a loving couple, being all in all to each other. They were beautiful to see in their tender, loving way, keeping alive their early affection to the very end. Arm in arm they always walked in the old Scotch fashion, in no vain show. Their hearts were one. They were most worthy people. They could be counted on in their attendance at church, which was every Sabbath, at both services. They were faithfully in their place at the weekly prayer-meeting, too. They enjoyed the fellowship of God's people, and were attentive and intelligent worshippers in the sanctuary. They were fine examples of the religious life of the former days. Bright, cheerful, con tented, happy as the day was long. When Mr. Turnbull was called away after a lengthy and trying sickness, it was a terrible blow to Mrs. Turnbull, to which she could hardly be reconciled. But time wrought what reason and faith, blinded and stunned, could not. Some years after she was called to join her husband where there is no parting for ever. Our memory of them in their godly simplicity and thorough sincerity is very sweet.
