      Michigan Argus (Ann Arbor, Michigan), 6 Feb 1874
      In Memorium

      Walter A. Sackett, of Ann Arbor, son of H. Louise and the late Edward Sackett of Chicago, died on Wednesday evening, Jan. 21, 1874, aged 16 years and 6 months.

      The simple story of his life, so soon ended on earth, will always be its highest praise. By his quiet, consistent faith; by a certain child-like confidence in Christ and by his readiness to do good, Walter won the love and and (sic) esteem of those who knew him. Dying, without such disease as usually makes death painful, he almost literally "fell asleep" in Jesus. Among his companions in study and in the Sabbath school and church with which he was connected, he will not soon be forgotten, and those to whom he was nearest and dearest have already had evidence that there is very deep sympathy with their sorrow. He has gone hence that his "days may be long in the land" which the Lord hath promised to love those that love him (sic) and keep His commandments. And the same voice that called him to "com up higher"--the voice of Him who Himself wept,--says as of old, "Weep not." For "them also which sleep in Jesus will bring God with him."
      S.W.D.
