Anna Smith Bethea

On January 25, 1914, the home of Mr and Mrs E C Bethea, of Latta, was brightened by the coming of little Anna Smith and little George Russell. For eighteen months the twins were a source of great pleasure to a large circle of friends and relatives. Now the home is sad, and the little brother plays alone, for the little sister has gone to a fairer clime.

Little "Cutie," as she was lovingly called, was a general favorite. She never saw a stranger, and always had a bright, happy smile for everyone. Her life, though short, proved a blessing and inspiration to all who knew her.

For three weeks she was ill with fever, and later pneumonia developed. All that skilled nurses, physician and loving friends could do was done, but our Heavenly Father knew best, and on August 1st, 1915, her little spirit winged its flight to that beautiful land where sickness and death are no more.

The parents, brothers, sisters and friends who loved her so well, look up through a veil of tears to Him who doeth all things well. They know that little "Cutie" is safe with Jesus who says:

Suffer the little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
