Uncle Frank Landrum passed to the great beyond Sunday morning, after a brave and useful life of 90 odd years at his home three miles out on the Stephens Road. He leaves a number of children and grandchildren who can rise up call him blessed. He was a faithful Christian and enjoyed reading the bible as long as he was able to be up. He was greatly blessed with health and was able to go about his home until only a few months before he was called. His remains were laid to rest at Stephens Monday.
