        FITZENREITER At the residence of her parents in the town of Lake Charles, on Monday, November 10, 1884, at 4:15 a.m., Miss Cora Louise Fitzenreiter, a native of New Orleans, eldest daughter of Charles Fitzenreiter and Babbett C. Goos, in the 16th year of her age.
        Again has death invaded the Home circle and torn from its midst a loved and cherished one. But a few days ago we bid her good-bye, hoping she would soon recover, and sad indeed was the news that came speeding over the wires that she was no more. Mysterious indeed are Thy ways, O God! We know not why this affliction should fall upon us, but Thou hast said, in Thy Holy Word, that "whom the Lord loveth, He chasteneth." It may be that our hearts are straying too far from Him who loves us so much, and He has taken one more to Himself, that we poor bereft ones might follow them and be saved. Be comforted, dear parents, your Cora is not dead, but has only passed into Life eternal, where no more pain can reach her, and where she is now reunited with the dear ones so recently gone before. Though young in years, she gave evidence, by her daily walk, that she was indeed one of God's children. Seldom has it been the writer's privilege to know one more devoted to her religious duties. Lovely in person, lovely in character, she now shines a bright angel in Heaven. May God bless and comfort the bereaved ones, and reunite them in that House where partings come no more.
