CARD OF THANKS
Words fail to convey our appreciation of the many beautiful things done for us by our friends in this our last sorrow.
Mrs. Guy Newcomer and family.
This obituary of my Grandfather was transcribed from a copy my sister Carol sent me. There is no indication on that copy of which newspaper the obituary was originally published in. The Card of Thanks did appear under the obituary. Grandpa's mother was Melinda (Mikesell) Newcomer. It is through Melinda that our line of Newcomer is connected to the Mikesell and Bayes families.
