A Friend's Tribute to Victor G. Garland:It is with intense sadness that we mourn the loss of our dear friend, Victor, who so unexpectedly and suddenly was called to leave his earthly home for a higher home above. We shall miss him, and we do miss him, in his daily walks of life. Although quiet and unassuming in manners he was endowed with a generous, loving heart, and loyal to his friends. It seems doubly sad to part with one so young in years, with such strong hopes and possibilities in the life before him; to be taken from his devoted companion and loving friends. But trusting our loss is his gain we will be resigned.
He is not dead, the friend of our affection, but gone unto that home where he no longer needs protection. For God Himself doth rule.
