He was permitted to escape, in a great degree, from the melancholy approaches of the last foe. He endured no long continuance of pain. He underwent no violent struggle. The garment of mortality easily dropt off; and the servant of God fell asleep in the Lord. “Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright; for the latter end of that man is peace. Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord; they rest from their labours and their works follow them.” May the "memorial of the just” remain with us "in everlasting remembrance!” Let us “ remember them that have spoken unto us the words of God." Let us be “followers of them who through faith and patience are now inheriting the promises.” Let us live the life of the righteous, that we may die his death, and our latter end, like his, may be blessed!
