burial was in Maple Row cemetery at Kellerton. The services were largely attended by friends of the family who came to pay tribute of
respect to the departed and to share with the bereaved ones their burden of grief. Many beautiful floral tributes bore
silent testimony to the high esteem in which the departed was held in the community. The seven sons served as pall bearers.
