He was a kind and loving husband and father.
  • We miss him sorely and our hearts are sad,
  • Because of his going,
  • Yet we know he is faring on just as dear.
  • In the land of there as the land of here.
  • And we think of him still as the same I say --
  • For he is not dead, he is just away.
Those from a distance to attend the funeral were Mrs. Cash Hubbard and son Buell and Mr. and Mrs. George Drommer of Norton, Kansas.

Funeral services were conducted from the Federated church Thursday afternoon, Rev. Dykema officiating with services at the grave conducted by the Odd Fellows lodge of Platte.
