OBITUARY - JOHN WESLEY SHIELDS.

"Be not dismayed what e'er betide,
God will take care of you.
Beneath His wings of love abide,
God will take care of you.
Thro'ev'ry day, o'er all the way;
He will take care of you,
God will take care of you.

We all hope and pray that God has taken care of our departed husband, son, father, and brother, John Wesley SHIELDS.
