Richard Childers Walker! With Jesus We Leave Him.

Born March 27th, 1832
Died Nov 8th, 1859

Several years before his death he was
baptized into the Jeffersonville Baptist
Church, and lived a consistent Christian
life.  His death was most triumphant as he
exclaimed in ecstasy I see Heaven open
and Jesus standing ready to receive me.
With Jesus we leave him.

"Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep.
From which none ever wakes to weep.
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the last of foes."
