"The people of Little Sands and vicinity were shocked on the morning of December 14th, 1918, to learn of the death from pneumonia, of Kenneth H. Ferguson, at the early age of 39 years and nine months.
Deceased was a son of Mungo Ferguson of White Sands. He leaves to cherish his memory besides his aged father, a widow, an eight year old daughter, four brothers, including one "somewhere in France", five sisters, besides a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn the loss of a dutiful son, a loving, devoted husband and father, an affectionate brother, a kind and sympathetic neighbour.
His funeral was held on Sunday afternoon, services being conducted by his pastor, Rev. W. H. Sweet, who, in an eloquent address protrayed vividly the beauties and happiness of the "Home Beyond", closing his address with the Divine injunction "Be ye also ready".
The pallbearers were D. A. Munn, R. W. McKenzie, Peter Brehaut, John McLeod, John H. McLean, and D. MacN. Smith. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved in their sore affliction."
