Little do we know who will be the next of our number called to pass over into the beautiful beyond, to join those who have gone before to answer the roll call of the Great Commander. Comrade Gilbert served for three years, was a faithful soldier, prompt to duty, and had the confidence, and esteem of his superiors; the efore, be it.
RESOLVED, That in the death of Comrade Gilbert, J. M. Warner Post, No. 4, G.A.R. has lost a respectable and valuable member of its order, a comrade who was ever faithful to the obligation of the order, a true Comrade, and a friend to all.
