  • Resolutions
    Whereas it has pleased God to remove form the walks of life our dear brother, James S. Holman, whose death occured at his son's family home, near Pleasant Valley church, five miles west of Cookeville, on October 30, 1915. Therefore be it resolved by Pleasant Vally Local No 1224, F. E. & C. U. of A. That in the death of Brother Holman our local lost a loyal and worthy man, his neighbors a thoughful and unselfish friend. By the death of such a man as Brother Holman, the ties that bind us to the Heaven above are made stronger and may the good deeds and Christian example that he has left behind ever inspire us to follow in the Masters footsteps, and ultimately attain that reward which our beloved brother has already realized. Be it forever remembered, that a page of the record be set apart to the memory of our deat brother. M. Y Fairris, E. H. Davis and H. D. McCullen
