BUNKER HILL
"Vera & Vesta"
WILLIAM LEWIS BASS

Again our community has been saddened by a visit from the death angel who entered the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Bass and bore the spirit of their son William away on his cold, icy wings. He had been sick for several months, and though his death was daily expected, it was a great shock to his beloved ones. But they do not grieve as those who have no hope, for he declared his willingness to die, and told of his bright hope of Heaven. He leaves a wife and two little boys. May He who has promised to be a husband to the widow and father to the fatherless, comfort and sustain them in their dark hour. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. F. Beasley at Bee Springs Church and burial in the beautiful cemetery adjoining.
