  • Notes 
    • ELVIN S. BLODGETT

      It has often been said that death means the paying of nature's debt, but the saying is untrue. It is not paying a debt at all it is rather to present
      a note at the bank to receive in exchange for it. solid gold. The body cumbrous, and often decayed, is surrendered and upon its surrender, we receive from God's bank life, joy and immortality. The law of death is not less beneficent than the law of life both are given to us by a loving Father.

      Elvin S. Blodgett passed away Jan. 15, 1922 at his daughter's home, Mrs. E.J. Austin, Read, Colorado.
