McLain, Owen Lee
Died June 5, 1955,

Deuchars - Owen Lee McLain was born near here on October 27, 1943, and died June 5 at the age of 11 years.

Although he had been ill for many months, 4 months of which were spent in the Children's Hospital in Louisville, he was always cheerful and had a ready smile for all.

Survivors are his parents, Mr and Mrs Roy McLain, of Deuchars; three brothers, and two sisters, Nell Ruth McLain, of Deuchars; Mrs Eulala Trimble, of California; Edward McLain, of Alton; William McLain, of New Albany, and Elwood McLain, of Beechwood. A brother, Taylor, preceded him in death May 15, 1924.

Dear Lord, I come to enter in, The gate that's open wide. I do not know the ways of sin, There is room for me inside. I visited here on earth awhile, With ones I loved so dear. Think of me only with a smile, Just like when I was there. I'll go on ahead and wait for you, Along the shining way, We will hold the hand that's always true, When we meet on that glorious day.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, June 7, at the Alton Baptist Church with the Rev B.L. Orr in charge. Burial was in Flower Point cemetery.
