Hubert Ross Bryant.
Obituary, Denver Daily Times, June 13, 1881.]

Mr. Hubert R. Bryant, of Valparaiso, Indiana, died yesterday at the residence of J. O. Bosworth, Esq. The deceased was a graduate of Wooster college, Ohio, and was twenty-three years of age. A too close attendtion to his studies was the commencement of his failing health. He came to Colorado two years ago, leaving a large circle of anxious friends. His pleasant demeanor, strict uprightness and intellect son won for him many warm friends among the best circles of old and young people of the city. His health so far improved that he went East last fall, returning again in April; since which time he has failed quite rapidly until yesterday morning, when he died peacefully, fully trusting in the redeeming love of his Saviour.

Obituary, Denver Daily Tribune, June 14th.]

"Oh joy! That in our embrio is something that doth live." As the long train of ages glide by ere break of day last Sabbath morn the lovely spirit of our friend Hubert Ross Bryant joined the innumerable caravan gliding heavenward.

Gently, peacefully, as cometh the dawn came to him the eternal rest. With only a frail body to fetter a manhood strong in its nobility; young, loving and beloved we do not wonder that life to him even at the gate of heaven was dear -- how dear was told by the wistful look of his deep blue eyes. It was at the tomb of such a friend that the Saviour, though knowing all the bliss in heaven wept.

Sweet are the Sabbaths of earth; dream ye of those in heaven. Ah, truly "God is love" to choose his brightest, happiest day to lure the dear one from his eartly loves. The young man was at his peace with God yet loving life -- so sould our Heavenly Father have us all.

Dear boy, sad are our hearts to-day -- brighter our heaven. Father, brothers, sisters, friends --

"Oh live and deeply cherish still
The sweet rememberance of the past."

Gather the flowers our beloved prize and know that in "that land where tired feet with sandals loose may rest" he gathers fairer blossoms with the loved ones gone before. Lift up your eyes unto the hills he loved and take comfort that for him there is no more traveling to and fro for strength. Upon the shining table-lands of God, Hubert has found the perfect health and fullness of joy. God grant us grace to follow him.
