    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, August 25, 1909 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Hicks District - On Tuesday, August 17, occurred the death of Charlie Stewart, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Stewart, aged 16 years and 5 months. Charlie had not been feeling well during the previous week, but nothing serious was apprehended until Thursday when calling on a physician his disease was found to be appendicitis. Dr. Wallace, of Syracuse, was sent for and assisted by Dr. More, performed an operation Friday. His chances for recovery w-ere pronounced good, and all thought he was doing nicely until Tuesday morning when the nurse, watching by his bedside, saw that a change for the worse had taken place and the parents soon knew that they must part with their loved one. He died early Tuesday evening. The news of his death was a great shock to his outside friends. When they were hoping and expecting that lie would soon be well, his life was fast going out. Everything possible was done for his recovery and loving hands ministered to his every want. His sufferings were severe but he was patient and brave through it all. The funeral was held from the home, Friday at 1 o'clock. Rev. P. O. Wilcox, pastor of the deceased, officiated, assisted by W. A. Wart. The sermon was a beautiful tribute to his memory and all felt with the pastor that each had lost a personal friend. Four young ladies, Bertha Manwarren, Florence Nicholson, Sadie and May Reynolds sang "Asleep in Jesus" and other selections. Richard Lacy, Clinton Mamvarren, Raymond and Clarence Murray acted as bearers, and May Nicholson, Vivian Hicks, Marjorie Barnard, Vivian Murray, Sadie and May Reynolds were pail bearers. He was laid to rest in Mapleview-7 cemetery. He has gone from us but the influence of his pure and holy life is with us still and may that influence help in accomplishing the one great desire of his life, that of having his young associates accept the Savior wJiom he served and worshiped. He will be greatly missed by the loved ones he has left. His only brother, who is on the ship. New Hampshire, and at the time was out to sea, was not able to reach home in time for the funeral. The many beautiful flow?ers testified to the love and esteem of his many friends. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire neighborhood. "Come unto me when shadows darkly gather, when the sad heart is weary and distressed; seeking for comfort from your Heavenly Fattier, come unto me and I will give you rest. Large are the mansions in our Father’s dwelling, collated are those homes that sorrow never dim; Sweet are the harps in holy music swelling, soft are the tones that raise the heavenly hymn. There like an Eden blossoming in gladness. Bloom the fair fknvers by earth so rudely pressed; come unto Him all ye who droop in sadness, come unto Me and I will give you rest. "
