William Arnold Shouse
bright link in the chain of love
“Death loves a shining mark” for again our hearts are pained
to record the taking of one of the brightest and best of our young friends.
Wm. Arnold Shouse, born October 2, 1880 in Pratt Co., Mo., died November
29, 1899, at the home of his sister, Mrs. David Risk in Weston, Mo., of
fever, and was buried in the Pleasant Ridge churchyard of which one present
said, “What a beautiful spot from which to arise to meet the Lord
on the resurrection morn.” The grave was covered with flowers by
loving schoolmates and friends from Liberty where he had been in school.
Rev. Lee Harrel conducted the services. The sermon was comforting and
impressive from the text: “And have hope toward God that there shall
be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.” –
Acts 24, 15
comfort the bereaved ones by the presence of His Holy Spirit.
