Easter Sunday April 10th, 1898
Cemetery of Salem Congregation
portrait taken after the morning services on Easter Sunday
at the gravesite of the departed Pastor Simon Kuhlenhoelter 10 April
1898 at 6:30 in the morning.
In the middle of the cemetery in the socalled
circle, we see a tall column resting on a foundation. West of this monument
rests the earthly remains of the one who has been to the Salem congregation
for almost 22 years, their best friend and advisor, the caretaker of
their souls and leader on their earthly journey. There he rests, never
to be forgotten, our dear Pastor Kuhlenhoelter, from his life's labor.
The future stretching into eternity will tell us more, so the blessings
of his faithful labor on the earth.
Also, on the morning of the past Easter Sunday,
when the sun rose so beautifully, almost all of us gathered again at
his last resting-place, at his gravesite. And at this spot, looking
over the graves of our many dear departed, our eyes filled with tears
in the hope of eternal life. We sang this beautiful song, "Jesus
My Saviour Lives", with hope to gain eternal life from our heavenly
King who has promised and said - "Where I am, My servants are also."
