What happens in the dash of ones life? The significance of ones life are
the years between the beginning and the end, the dash. I had the privilege
of knowing Faye Elrich for the last 34 years of my life. She is someone
that will never be measured by great deeds but by the little things she
did over her lifetime. I have traveled to over 65 different countries and
have fought in three different wars but have failed to live up to the
lifes work of my mother. During my career I always had one advantage over
the other guy. At every moment of fear I knew that my mother would be
there praying for my protection and to give me the courage to perform my
job of leading of soldiers.

Faye will not be remembered for her material possessions when she departed
this earth. She will be remembered for her small donations to the youth

charity of Gods work and to her fellow man is comparable to the widow that
had but only a mite to give to God. I am comforted that tonight she sleeps
in a mansion for remembering what is most important in life.

He is survived by a father and a mother, three sisters and one half brother and one half sister. One sister and one half brother preceeded him in death. In his early years Thomas was not a Christian but during his last illness he professed faith in Christ. He spoke often of his new found hope and urged and exhorted his loved ones to accept Christ and be saved from the consequences and the wages of a life of sin. In his agony and suffering as the end drew near, he often prayed to be permitted to pass into the life beyond. He requested those who watched with him to sing some songs that were dear to him, and up to the last moments he would lift his voice and join in the singing. Without fear or shudder of sorrow he passed gently at the last into death his one regret was that he had not yielded his life to Christ in earlier years. His last message to loved ones and friends alike was a warning to prepare to meet God. Funeral services were held at the First Baptist church in this city, Friday, November 21, 1919, at 2 p. m., conducted by the pastor, Rev. A. E. Prince. The body was laid to rest in Wolf Creek cemetery.

A. T. Webber Dies at Stockton, Cal. (Andrew Thomas Webber)
A.T. Webber, an old citizen of Baxter County, died at Stockton, Cal., on Saturday morning. He has many relatives and friends among the old settlers who will mourn his death deeply.
He was the son of Uncle Joe Webber, a pioneer settler who used to live near where Benville is now. On Dec. 27 1882 he married Jennie Smith, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.P. Smith, who were among the oldest settlers in this part of the state. Several years after the marriage they moved to Stockton, Cal. where they have resided since. His wife, two daughters and a son, survive him. He was nearing his 59th birthday when he died. His death was not unexpected, as he had been troubled with an enlarged artery for some time. He was operated on a short time ago.
He died suddenly. He was well in the morning, and asked his wife to fix him some medicine and walked into the kitchen to get it. She noticed him spit some blood in the sink. At that time he said, “I am gone this time.” They carried him to a couch and he expired before a physician could reach him. He was not afraid to die and had often said he was prepared to go.
The deep sympathy of friends and relatives here are extended to the widow and children in Stockton.

Mr. Henry T. Webber,
Mountain Home, Ark.,
Dear Sir: -
The sad news of the loss of your son has been communicated to you no doubt by the government officials.
Private Arthur B. Webber, No. 1587572, Company F. 153rd Infantry, 39 Division, 6th Company Camp Beaureguard Replacement Draft, was drowned in the Cher River about three-fourths of a mile below St. Aignan bridge, at 8:30 p.m. July 1st, 1918. The body was recovered yesterday morning, July 4th about a quarter of a mile below.
The official Board of Inquiry of which I was a member decided that Arthur lost his life in the line of duty and not due to his misconduct. This is a very dangerous river and orders have been issued forbidding swimming in it.
He was buried yesterday, July 4th afternoon and with military honors and many of the boys gave up their holiday sports to render last honors to him. I told them that it would be a source of consolation to you to hear that they rendered this homage to their brother in arms.
He is buried in section O Grave 16 in St. Aignan cemetery, St. Aignan-Noyers, France. Department of Loiret Cher.
May God accept the sacrifice of this life as he does that of those who die on the field of battle.
