RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT IN MEMORY OF OUR DEAR BROTHER ALF, WITH LOVE AND SYMPATHY
We as brothers and sisters, present these few lines of love and devotion, in behalf of our beloved and honored brother. We desire to make sacred his memory--for to know him was to love him. We deeply regret the passing of dear Alf; for our association with him has been full of all that makes for a higher and better life; our homes have been made happier and brighter; and all about the social air is sweeter, for him having been with us.
After long years of suffering our brother has fallen asleep. We would not even question why it is sad---but he was ready for the call, he was tired and weary with toil and pain. The clock struck, three, the time was up. --- He has left us in sorrow, kind and patient he has finished his mission that he was sent here to do.
You will miss him--but trust in the Lord, and in your trials and tribulations remember conditions might have been worse. Be strong and brave, remove all grief and pain, for their is eternal love and life beyond the grave. We as brothers and sisters extend to the family our heart felt sympathy, in the passing of your dear Husband and father.
HE IS NOT DEAD-----HE HAS JUST FALLEN ASLEEP-----GOD BLESS HIS MEMORY.
