Izard County Register dated Jun 4th, 1908 - Tribute of Respect
In memory of Sovereign Drew Reynolds, who was made a Woodman of the World at Mt. Olive, Ark. Sept. 21, 1907 and who was called to the Grand Camp above Apr. 24, 1908.
Dear Sovereigns of Mt. Olive Camp, No 570 – for the first time in the history of this Camp, Grim Death has visited us and claimed for its victim Sov. Drew Reynolds.
Sov. Reynolds was an exemplary, energetic, industrious young man; just blooming into vigorous young manhood and his death was a severe shock to the entire community in which he lived. We as mortal beings, cannot understand why God, in His goodness and mercy plucks from amongst us the sweetest flowers and most precious jewels: but some day we will understand why it is thus. The death of Sov. Reynolds reminds us that we will be called upon to answer the summons, “Come up higher,” and may it admonish us to live, that when it does come, we will be prepared to meet “Him who gave his life, that we, though His name might have life eternal.” Be it therefore.
-------That we bow in humble submission, to the will of “Him who doeth all things well.” That woodcraft has lost a faithful exponent. That we set apart a page in our Record Book to the memory of Sovereign Reynolds, and that these Resolutions be spread at length upon same; and a copy be sent his bereaved and sorrowing mother and a copy to each of our county papers for publication.
Respectfully submitted: Knox Hayden, Chas. E. Jeffery, Jeffery Dixon
