484. Earl Stahlman Ballentine
from The Brookville Republican, 1900
DEATH OF EARL BALLENTINE – A
Bright Little Fello Falls a Victim to the Dread Disease, Diabetes
Earl Stahlman (Ballentine –
“Stahlman was apparently his middle name), only son of G. A. and Mary
Ballentine, died at their home in Brookville, February 15, aged nearly ten
years. For over a year he suffered from diabetes during which time the
best medical skill was employed and every known means used to check the
disease but all to no purpose, and though death seemed inevitable yet its
coming was sudden, he being sick only a few hours.
Earl was thoughtful beyond his
years and his affectionate disposition endeared him to all with whom he
came in contact. His life though short left an impress for good on those
about him. This is the second time in two years that death has entered
this home, Little Nellie, who was Earl’s constant companion while she
lived, having died almost two years before, of the same disease.
May the parents not rejoice in the
thought that their little ones, so strongly attached to each other in
life, were not long separated by death and have met never to part again,
and may they realize with the poet that:
possess thy body, thy soul is still with me,
and more gladsome than it was wont to be,
|Thy body was
a fetter that bound me to the flesh,
that it is broken, and now I live afresh.
|Now I can
see Thee clearly, the dusky cloud of clay,
|That hid thy
starry spirit, is rent and blown away.
|To earth I
give thy body, Thy spirit to the sky.
|I saw its
bright wings growing, and knew that thou must fly.
