William Loren Berry died on 14 Oct 1882 in Lexington, KY. as a result of a faming accident. He was eleven years old at the time of his death. He was a Fourth grade student at Mercer County Elementary School. Lee wanted a career in the military. He was a energetic little boy who had a ready smile and loved the world around him. He is forever missed by his family.
In the years that have passed since Lee died I have come to the realization that while his years were short his task was completed. He was my teacher, my guide and has influnced me more than anyone else I know. He taught me to have patience, understanding of others and to enjoy the time we are alloted here on earth.
