Little Julia, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Goodrick, aged six years, died at her country home east of Marshfield on Saturday evening, Oct. 7th, 1893. The memory of this little girl is so pathetic. She was blooming into school life, having attended school only a few days. She was a bright child, and her associates mourn the loss of one of their dearest playmates. Her every step was the step of good. Her heart was a heart of tenderness; her eyes were bright with that joy of peace, which shines outward from a soul. So dear will be her memory. With autumn the bloom is a family urn; fades and dies away. With autumn the harvest is garnered in heaven. The great Divine wins what we have lost; the throne of heaven is gladdened with another voice. The hopes of a mother are blasted, but the hopes of angels are crowned. The joys of heaven will equal the sadness of that home tonight. The cold, pale moon shines from the realms where Julia sings and awaits your coming. The lovely night shall have the music heard only in the heavenly halls tonight. The sorrow that it brings is only the footprints of a shepherd on the sword of life. Julia has gone to the place of divine joy and happiness. She will never sit at the fireside again as an idol of a mother's love. Death stood in the hallway of life, and at evening when the cares of day were past and gone, and cares of night burdened a mother's breast, and through the stillness of her home. Death led home a dear soul, as a shepherd leads his favorite lamb into best pastures, sipping from the same brook and basking in the same eternal sun.
