Card of Thanks. 

We beg to thank all those who sent flowers and messages of sympathy; our pastor Rev. A. A. Frederick for his comforting words, the girls who sang, those who so kindly loaned their automobiles, and the ladies who helped in the home; also the friends who helped and tried to brighten the sick room during our beloved one’s long illness. We little realize how much a quiet expression of sympathy means until we are the ones bereft and God has sent our friends to comfort us. 

— Mrs. James Keenholts and daughters
