Letter From Walter Tygart’s Widow
Mrs. Della Reed, and family
Santa Ana, California
Dear Della;
Haven’t heard from you in a long time, but suppose you are at the same address. Walter took sick Nov. 9 and passed away Nov. 17. He had the flu and Neuritis at the beginning, but later other complications set up and toward the last the doctor said the flu had settled in his kidneys causing uremic poisoning. We had two doctors and every thing was done that could be. Mother Tygart, Lillie, Leon and Martin came but did not get here before he died. I was so sorry they didn’t. But he did not live long after he took the turn for the worse. We had hopes for him until Saturday afternoon. When the doctor told us there was no chance, that he couldn’t live through the night. It just seems like I can’t give him up. I miss him so.
From
Bessie."

1. Obituary from unknown Polk County, MO newspaper.
"In Memory of Roma Tygart
Roma Tygart, son of Thomas and Ann Tygart was born Nov. 26, 1894, and died near Aldrich, Mo., July 19, 1914. He was married to Miss Floy Kirby Sept. 11, 1912.
He professed faith in Christ, joined the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in 1909, and was a faithful member of that church until death. To know him was to love him. He leaves a wife, father, mother, two sisters, one brother and a host of friends to mourn his sudden death.
He said he was ready and willing to go and begged his relatives and friends to meet him. He told his papa he wanted him to live a better life and attend church more and be ready when Jesus called.
But he is no more, he has crossed the river of life, from whence no traveler returns. But we would say to those whose hearts are heavy, weep not, but prepare to meet him on that other shore, where there will be no more sorrow but rest, prefect rest. The funeral services were conducted by Bro. Henry Maxwell at the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery.".
