Whereas God the All Wise Ruler of the earth has in his infinite wisdom removed from among us one of our brightest and most treasured pupils, Vera Lawman, and, whereas the faithfulness and willingness with which she worked in our Sabbath school, make it eminently befitting that we record our appreciation of her, therefore be it.

Resolved, That the faithfulness and willingness with which she worked will be held in grateful remembrance.

Resolved, That the sudden removal of such a life from our Sabbath school and community leaves a vacancy and a shadow that will be deeply realized by all our members and friends of our Sunday School and will prove a great loss to our community.

Nastutium arrangement

Resolved, That with sympathy for the bereaved family and relatives of the deceased we express our hope that even such a great loss to us all may be overruled for good by Him who knows and does all things for the best.

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the Duff Street United Brethren Sunday school, a copy printed in each of our city daily papers and a copy be sent to the bereaved family.
