FORD—Sister Martha C. Ford was born in Utica, Hinds County, Miss., October 2, 1848; was converted and united with the M. E. Church, South, in 1865; married to G.B. Ford April 9, 1868; moved to Texas in February 1886. She lived a faithful life and died a triumphant death June 3, 1910. Sister Ford was a faithful wife, a dutiful mother and a true Christian character. She was the mother of eight children, two of whom died in infancy. The other six, with her husband, survive her. The life of Sister Ford is found in her children. She was not afraid to die, “knowing that she had a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens,” but was anxious to go, for death meant a release from suffering. With an earnest desire for the future welfare of her loved ones, she called them to her bed and gave them her farewell charge, and asked them to meet her in her home beyond the skies. Let us meet her there.  J. FRANK LUKER
