The Mount Ayr Record-News, 1927

DEATH of LITTLE MARVIN JENNINGS.

Marvin Lee JENNINGS, only child of Ralph and Bernice JENNINGS, was born near Redding, Iowa, September 10, 1922, and departed this life at the home of his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. C. T. JENNINGS, March 9, 1927, age four years, five months and 29 days. Little Marvin had been in failing health for about three months, being bedfast about six weeks; bearing his intense suffering with unusual patience. Little Marvin was a bright and loving child. To know him was to love him.

He leaves to mourn his departure his father and mother, his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Joe MAIN, of Mount Ayr, Iowa, Mr. and Mrs. C. T. JENNINGS, of Redding, Iowa, two great-grandmothers, aunts, uncles and cousins, a host of other relatives and friends.

"We need love's tender lessons taught
As only weakness can;
Goth hath his small interpreters;
The child must teach the man.

Of such thy kingdom - teach thou us,
O Master most devine,
To feel the deep significance
Of these wise words of thine!

The haughty eye shall seek in vain
What innocense beholds;
No cunning finds the key of heaven,
No strength its gate unfolds.

Along to guileness and to love
This gate shall open fall;
The mind of pride is nothingness,
The childlike heart is all."

Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church in Redding, March 11, conducted by Rev. Frank ULLERY, of Blockton. The body was laid to rest in Redding cemetery.

Card of Thanks.

We are profoundly grateful to all the neighbors and friends for the kindness and sympathy so generously bestowed during the illness and on the occasion of the death and funeral of our little son.
MR. AND MRS. RALPH JENNINGS.
