Goldie Mae Altman
The funeral of Miss Goldie May Aultman were held at her father's residence on Second street, Wednesday afternoon, at 3 o'clock. The services were conducted by R. Mackin, from Job, 14:14, in which Job asked the question: "If a man die shall he live again?" in which the speaker cited that it was a proper question for Job to ask in his day for he had been called upon to receive the announcement of the death of his seven sons and three daughters in one day, and as no one had ever before come forth from the grave, it was perfectly proper that he should ask this question. But for two thousand years it has been a demonstrated fact that He who is the life giver, came and passed through the portals of the tomb and caused it to be written, "Behold, I am He that liveth, and was dead, and am alive forever more, and have the keys of death and the grave," and to this agree the words of the Savior in John 5:28, 29: "Marvel not at this for the hour is coming in the which all that are in the grave shall hear His voice, and shall come forth, they that have done good unto the resurrection of life, and that have done evil unto the resurrection of damnation," so that the proper question for every one of us to ask, is not, "If a man shall die shall he live again?" but, "If a man live again shall he die again?" which is left wholly to every man to decide for himself whether he will come forth to life eternal or come forth to go down in that whch (sic) is termed in the scriptures as the second death, from which there is no awakening. Rev. 30:6.
