Richard Callison-Died May 19, 1946
Needing a small angel in heaven, the wisdom of God prompted Him to select little Richard Callison early Sunday morning,
May 19, 1946. Richard, son of the late Elba Callison and Mrs. Elizabeth Smith Callison, died at the Pocahontas Memorial
Hospital after a sudden illness. He would have been ten years old in June. a brother, Samuel Callison, also survives.
Richard Callison was a sweet boy, known and loved through the whole town, where he assisted his brother Samuel in
carrying daily newspapers. He death brought deep sorrow to many homes.
Though only a young lad, Richard was ready for this untimely experience. At a recent service in the Malinton Methodist
Church he accepted Christ as his Saviour, and was baptised and accepted into membership at that church.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon with Rev. Harvey C. Porter in charge, and the body of little Richard was
laid to rest in the Mountain View Cemetery here.
