Miss Mable Banks sang, "Lead, Kindly Light" and "Abide with Me" with Mrs.
L.H. Fitch at the piano. The church was filled with many friends who mourn
their loss and gave sympathy. The floral tributes were beautiful. Burial

He will never be forgotton
Never shall his memory fade
Sweetest thots shall ever linger
Round the grave where he is laid.
Card of Thanks
Our thoughts are best expressed in the following poem:
Who stands close when there's grief to bear?
Whose kindly hands seem everywhere?
Who, after all's been said and done,
Are the best folks beneath God's sun?
and we thank "Our Neighbors".
