    William Vanburen HOLMES - 1840-1911
    from William V. and Charlotte Ann (Worley) 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 closed,
    Life’s days were ended and he in Christ reposed.
    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 to us,
    But we can go to him.

    One who Loved Him
