On December 21st, 1905, Mr. Charlie B. Bell died at the home of his brother, Mr. D. B. Bell, near Kitching’s Mill, S. C., aged thirty-four years.  He was ill with pneumonia just one week and his death was a great shock.

Mr. Bell was loved and trusted by everybody.  He was an earnest Christian and a devoted follower of Christ.  He not only professed religion but practiced it also in his everyday life.  He leaves nine brothers and one sister to mourn his loss.  They are comforted by the knowledge that he died trusting in Christ as his personal Saviour.  Funeral services were held by his beloved pastor, Rev. J. C. Browne after which his remains were interred at Tabernacle Baptist church, of which he had been a member about eleven years.  A large congregation assembled to testify the love and esteem in which he was held in the community.

“Farewell, Charlie we will meet you,
In that bright home above,
Where there’ll be no pain or sorrow,
Naught but never dying love.”

Eunice Kitching.
