A Hodshire officiating. Music was furnished by Mrs. Elijah Huffman, soloist, and a quartet, C W Jarvis, Jr., M. B.

While at Salina, their only son, Theodore Henry Lang, was born.  When a young man, Mr. Lang united with the Methodist Episcopal church near Centerville, Iowa, and from that time has lived an earnest, consistent, Christian life. Soon after the arrival of the family at Davenport, all three united with the M E Church here, and have been active in both church and Sunday school work. The church and community extend to his sorrowing family sincere love and sympathy. The church has lost a loyal, willing worker, the community an honored, respected citizen.  Within the past months since he became aware of his serious condition, he often expressed a wish to live for the sake of his family, but said he was ready to go if it were God’s will. Having taken for the rule of his life, the Golden Rule of Christ, Mr. Land could say with Him, ‘Thy Will, not mine, be done.’  Besides his wife and son, he is survived by his mother, Mrs. V. A.
