      RESOLUTIONS BY PROVIDENCE BAPTIST CHURCH, in Memory of Bro. B.S. Crain

      Death, the grim reaper, which is sure to come to all of us, has once more entered our ranks and taken from us one of our best and noblest members...We believe that our brother was a true christian, a follower of the meek and lowly Nazarene. His life indicated such a condition. Bro. B.S. Crain was born Sept. 16, 1866; joined the Baptist church at Bethel, Heard County in August 1885; was married Dec 25, 1898 to Miss Ida G. Whitaker, daughter of J.J. and M.M. Whitaker; was ordained a deacon of Bethel church in 1904. He moved his membership to Providence church, Coweta County, March 23, 1907 and was received as one of its deacons. He departed this life Aug 25, 1907. He was a quiet, modest man, and those who knew him best loved him most. He was sorely afflicted with fever a long time, but bore his afflictions with christian fortitude and was submissive to the divine will of his heavenly father.

      Resolved, that in the death of Bro. Crain, our church has lost one of its most valuable members, the community a good citizen, the family a kind husband, a dutiful son and a loving brother. We extend to the bereaved ones our heartfelt sympathy and pray that God's richest blessings may rest upon the widowed mother and bereaved wife and would counsel his brothers to emulate his noble christian character.
