The Baxter Bulletin
April 1, 1910
The Dark Angel visited the home of Brother and Sister Haugh on Sunday morning of 27th of March, 1910, and removed from their home their only boy, Elmor Hugh, with that dreaded disease, consumption.
Elmo was born July 25, 1900, and died at the age of 9 years, 8 months and 2 days. He was a great sufferer, but bore it with patience until the end. During the last days he called on every Christian that visited him to pray that the good Lord would give him rest. This writer never saw anything like it.
Elmor was a strong believer in his God. Last Friday he was raked with pain in his lungs. His whole heart's desire was that Christian people pray God to give him ease. He said, 'Mamma, ask God t help me to get ease so that I can get my breath.' He called his uncle to his bedside and told him that he wanted him to promise him that he would live a better life. He said, 'Mamma, I don't care to die, but I have to leave you and papa and grandma.' Later he said, 'Mamma, for want of breath I couldn't say all I wanted to say to uncle. Ask God to send him back so I can talk to him about his soul. Mamma, ask God to let me rest and sleep, if not here I know I shall rest where little brother is.'
He was conscious to the last and said, 'Mamma, get just as close to me as you can.' Oh, for a mother to stay with us in our last hour. But, thank God, Jesus has promised never to forsake us but promised to be with us to the end. The little body was taken to the Haskel Cemetery, where the funeral was conducted by Elders W.D. Jennings and Jacob Skiver in the presence of a large crowd of sympathetic young friends.
Oh how it did rend the hearts of his dear parents to part with little Elmor, but they sorrow not as those that have no home but expect to meet little Elmor in the sweet by and by.
