  • Notes 
    • Litwiller. - Moses Litwiller, son of Christian and Maria Litwiller, was born in St. Agatha, Waterloo Co., Ont., July 1, 1876 and died in Petersburg, Ont., Sept. 24, 1916; aged 40 y. 2 m. 24 d. He was married to Lydia Brenneman about 15 years ago. To this union were born 6 sons.
      Bro. Litwiller accepted Christ when a young man and united with the A. M. Church, and was faithful until the end. He was sick only three weeks. First he had enlargement of the heart, after which he got pneumonia. We thought he was getting better, then gangrene set in.
      Bro. Litwiller expressed hope in the home beyond and desired the services of the Word and prayer and the singing during his days of sufferings. We can hardly understand why he was taken. We miss him so much. We have lost him. Heaven has found him, and we know that everything God does is well done. May we all take comfort in the thought that he now rests in the Savior.
      He leaves to mourn his departure his wife, 6 sons, parents, 3 brothers, and 5 sisters; also many relatives and friends.
      Funeral services were held at the St. Agatha A. M. Church on Tuesday, Sept. 25, conducted by Bros. Chr. Kropf of Tavistock and Eli Frey of Archbold, O. Text, II Tim. 4: 7, 8, and Isa. 38, last clause of first verse. "Set thine house in order, for thou shalt die and not live." Interment in cemetery near by.

      Around your sick bed, dear brother
      We watched with our tenderest care,
      Through the weary hours you suffered,
      While our hearts were uplifed in rpraye.
      Your life work is ended, dear brother,
      YouĂ­re with the loved ones gone before,
      May we all prepare to meet you
      On that bright celestial shore.

      By his sister
