Schuster, Lillie (1869 - 21 MAY 1887)
Died, in this city, May 21st, 1887, of consumption, Lillie Schuster, daughter of Herman Schuster, at the age of 18.

The deceased had been in poor health for a long time, and in April she was taken with measles, the disease settled on her lungs, and after a few short weeks, Death's finger touched her and she sleeps. Our worthy friend Schuster is sorely afflicted. This is the second death among his grown up children in less than a year, and the blow is hard to bear. No one can realize its effects more than he who has suffered the same affliction. If death was the end of all memory of the loved and lost, the blow, though painful, could more easily be borne, but there are years to come in which their dear faces will ever be present to us, reminding us of our great loss and sending a pang of anguish through our hearts every day. The vacant chairs, the absence of all those pleasant, endearing attentions with which we were wont to be blessed the merry voices uniting in simple melodies with which our weary minds were rested the bright and sparkling conversation, and ready wit which used to lighten our burdens, are lost to us, and no lapse of time can ever remove the sad remembrance. Our loved ones are gone never again to be seen by mortal eye. On the other side of the River, in spirit form, they beckon us to them. We see them in our thoughts, waking or sleeping, but we reach in vain to clasp the hands that beckon from the other side. Bro. Schuster may you and yours be comforted with the thought that some time, some day, you can join the dear ones in a land where sorrow and pain is unknown. Our heart mourns in sympathy with you, and we mingle our tears with yours over your sad bereavement.
