… William Wade Bumgardner, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Bumgardner, died December 18, 1920.  He was 19 years of age.  His body was laid to rest in the Line Creek Cemetery. 
The earth has lost its look of gladness, Heaven to us seems more bright, since the spirit of our loved one, took its homeward flight.  And we long to cross that river, long to rest upon the shore, there to see and love him, with our Savior evermore.  God called him home, it was His will, but in our hearts he lingers still.  Dear is he grave where he is laid, sweet is the memory that will never fade.
