Pruitt Holmes' family Bible
Contributed by: Bob Wallace
Mr. Wm. Holmes, the father of Asa Holmes,
departed from this world Feb. 7 (1911), age 71 years, leaving a wife and seven
children to morn his death, and a host of good friends
Another flower is gone,
To grace the garden of the Lord,
It bloomed on earth a little space;
Thee sought the best abode.
Back from his beautiful brow is brushed,
All his wandering waves of gold;
Crossed his bosom now,
and we can only say he has beat us home.
In calm unbroken slumber his eyes were
Life’s days were ended and he in
We stood by his bed side,
While bitter tear drops fell.
For oh, how much we loved him;
No hearts but ours can tell.
He was a presious sunbeam,
And oh, how sad without him,
But we must remember he can’t come
But we can go to him.
One who Loved Him
