Card of Thanks for Lenard EDWARDS.

     We desire to express our grateful thanks to our many friends for the many favors, kindnesses, and hospitality shown us during the illness and death of our beloved son and brother, Lenard EDWARDS.

Sincerely yours,
Mother and Son.


     Succumbing to a protracted illness of consumption, Mr. Lenard EDWARDS died at the home of his mother, Mrs. Rebeccah EDWARDS, in South Dickson, at an early hour Thursday morning, Dec. 9 aged 24 years.  Deceased is survived by his mother, one brother, and two sisters, the latter being Mrs. John M. GOSSETT, of this city and Mrs. Emma TRUETT, of Hickman county.  The surviving brother is James EDWARDS.   With these the entire community sympathizes in their sore berevement over the loss of one who was to them all that the words son and brother implies.  Ever gentle affectionate and devoted to duty Len was the very impersonation of goodness.  From childhood he manifested these beautiful traits which his every act in after life but magnified.  He was a trusted employee of the Centreville Branch Railroad, in which capacity he was a grand favorite with all his fellow employees.  He was also a member in high standing of the K. of P. Order, being a member of W. A. Hopkins Lodge, of this city, and under whose auspices his remains were interred in the Lyle cemetery in Hickman county, last Friday, in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends, 75 or more going from here.
