Lindsay, Lulu (1873 - 1879)

Died, in this place (Neillsville, Clark County), on the 1st of Feb., 1879, of diphtheria, Lula, oldest daughter of F. D. and Clara Lindsay, aged five years and seven months.

Death has at last triumphed, and he never folded his dark wings over a fairer form or released a gentler spirit. Sweet, bright-eyed little Lulu. After many an affliction, her dimpled hands have been folded in eternal repose. Though all of life to her has been pronounce in solemn cadence, and save in the unchanging mirror of parental affection, her childish image will soon begin to fade from human recollection. But who that has journeyed even to the summit of life s highroad can say sincerely that she is not favored, lying as she does in her spotless purity, forever at rest. O these life lessons are hard, and only the tender touch of Time can heal the bruised hearts of our friends, and teach them to accept the hallowed memory of their darling instead of her living presence. But the time will come when they can look upon her ever childish face, not through tears or in sorrow, but in gratitude for her brief visit, and, with love as fresh as ever, say with all their hearts: Sleep on, daughter we would not disturb they rest.
