Resolutions on Death of U. O. Gaines.

The following resolutions were read and adopted by the Best chapel Sunday school August 5th, 1900:

Whereas the great and supreme ruler of the universe has, in His infinite wisdom, removed from among us one of our worthy and esteemed fellow-laborers, Union Orr Gaines, and whereas the long and intimate relation held with him in the faithful discharge of his duties in this Sunday school makes it eminently befitting that we record our appreciation of him, therefore be it.

Resolved 1st.  That the wisdom and ability which he has exercised in the aid of our Sunday school by service, contribution and counsel, will be held in grateful remembrance.
Resolved 2d.  That the sudden removal of such a life from our midst leaves a vacancy and a shadow that will be deeply realized by all the members and friends of this Sunday school, and prove a serious loss to the community and the church.
Resolved 3d.  That with deep sympathy with the bereaved relatives of the deceased we express our hope that even so great a loss to us all maybe overruled for good by Him who doeth all things well.
Resolved 4th.  That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the records of this Sunday school, a copy printed in the local paper, and a copy forwarded to the bereaved family.
