The Passing of a Good Man

Last Wednesday afternoon at three o'clock, Dr. David Horace Thomasson died at his home near Annover, Cleveland County, after an illness lasting through several months. Dr. Thomasson was born in South Carolina eighty four years ago and came to Arkansas some time in the fifties. He was an honor graduate of the Medical Department of the University of Philadelphia and since graduating had practiced continuously. In 1858 he was married to Miss Chilonas Bell in Monticello, Ark.

During the Great War he gave his services to the Southland, and grieved at the impotency of her efforts. Since the end came and the cycle of Time has come and many times, his work has been in the interest of his fellow man. To write of him now, while he sleeps in the earth's great silence, free from the cares which he so willingly assumed, and the suffering which he bore without complaint, I am well assured of his infinite peace.

He was a physician of eminence and his intellectuality surpassing many, was inferior to none. The call of duty stirred his soul as the bugle call the soldier's; never a falter, never a halt, but up and doing for God and

His heart, grand and good knew no evil, and he was ever the good Samaritan to those whom he found by the way side; nor did he refuse help to any of God's creatures. The great Christ was his leader, and he kept near Him always. Denied children of his own he took others who were left alone and helpless, wrapped them about with his love, making bright and joyful the heart of the orphan. A physician of the soul as well as the body, the world is better that he has lived. The secular world has benefitted by his knowledge and mental powers and the Christian world by his simple faith and noble example.
His dear wife, the beloved of his soul, is left to mourn him, and only God can comfort her.
Maggie A. Burks, Pine Bluff, ARk. Sept. 1st 1903
