Goeden, Edward #2 (30 JUN 1891 - 10 MAR 1906)
Saturday evening at 7:30 o’clock the second child and only son of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Goeden breathed his last. Up to a year and a half ago Eddy was the very picture of health and life, strong and robust, when suddenly symptoms of the terrible disease of diabetes became manifest, which like a blighting frost withered the bloom of life and nipped the fair rosebud in the tender age of 14 years, 8 months and 10 days.
The funeral was held Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. from St. Mary’s Church, where friends and relatives from far and near gathered to show their sympathy to the parents in their sore affliction and pay a last tribute of regret tot eh boy who had won their love. The funeral ceremonies were conducted by Rev. J. L. Hauck. He chose for his text the words from the book of Wisdom, "He was taken away lest wickedness should alter his understanding, or deceit beguile his soul."
Eddy was always a good and obedient boy, an earnest, conscientious pupil, a faithful and devout alter boy and a most promising child. That deep in the hearts of his parents to be grief and sorrow over his early demise is but natural. Parents naturally cling with love to heaven’s best gift, in the form heaven sent it - the child. Yet there is consolation in the truth that their tender plant has gone to grow, expand and bloom in richer soil, in a better and kinder land. He was called because, "The Master had need of him."
