While departing this life he pointed toward heaven and seemed to pass to the beyond in a spirit of prayer. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Williams and R. N. Pearcy. Bro. T. L. Hankins is one of our pioneer ministers in Union association, Ky. This is his second son he has lost in less than a year. He also has another son in bad health in the west. Those of us that know Bro. and Sister Hankins and the worth of prayer ought to remember them in their hour of trouble and bereavement.
