Robt. Cunyus, Jr., infant son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Cunyus, was born on the 22nd day of January, 1885, and died the 15th of June, 1886, with cholera infantum.  He was a very fine, sprightly child of his age (about seventeen months.)  He was the idol of his parents’ hearts and was their only son.  He struggled like a little soldier, with all his strength to overcome the disease, but as he seemed to be giving away day by day, the angels came after him, saying he had suffered enough and that he must go with them.  He was only a little flower that budded on earth and bloomed in Heaven.  He will continue to bloom in all his beauty and sweetness as long as eternity lasts.  Take courage, dear parents, and remember he cannot come to you but thank God, you can go to him.

“Do not faint when tribulation darkens like a cloudy sky,
When the storms of desolation on thee beat, with a gloomy shade o’ercast;
Should thy feet be sore and weary, thou shalt reach thy home at last.
Onward press amid thy sadness, till thy toils and cares are o’er,
All thy grief shall turn to gladness on the fair celestial shores.”
