Fatally injured -- Ruby Sirois.
Injured, will recover, Max Ahlgrim, Jr.
Mrs. Ahlgrim was driving the car. The crossing is a bad one and the
train was probably right onto the car before it was seen. We received
the above meager information just at press time.
The following article was found in the July 15, 1920, Lowell Tribune on
page 1, column 5:
CHARLES AHLGRIM AND FRANCIS SIROIS
Little Charles Ahlgrim was born March 4, 1916, and with his mother and
little cousin, Francis Sirois, was taken safely home in the arms of
Jesus, July 7, 1920. He was just past four years and baby Francis had
not quite reached that fourth birthday. Francis was the youngest of
five children, and he leaves his fond parents, Mr. and Mrs. Neal Sirois,
two brothers and two sisters, who will badly miss him. Little Charles
leaves his father and two brothers. "Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
There is a Reaper whose name is Death,
And, with his sickle keen
He reaps the bearded grain at a breath
And the flowers that grow between.
"My Lord has need of these flowerettes gay,"
The Reaper said -- and smiled;
"Dear tokens of the earth are they
Where He was once a child."
O, not in cruelty, not in wrath,
The Reaper came that day;
'Twas an Angel visited the green earth
And took the flowers away.
