March 22, 1918

Friday March 22 1918  Cooler dark cloudy  the funeral day of my beloved boy Vic  his last day in his home  our children are all here Except 3  Sylvia Isabel & Nellie  we dont know why they dont come  Many many friends & Nabors assembled to attend the funeral  the boys got 41 chairs from the Baptist church  Mother & I went up stairs with all our relatives & our house big as it is & the porch was full & 32 families sent flowers  I never saw as many flowers at a funeral  Dutton & several Nabors lent their auto  the roads were fine & we buried Dear Vic in the old Taylor Cemetery with our little boy Ezra [1] & father & Mother Taylor Holden & Laura  Many Many friends went to the cemetery  the largest crowd I ever saw in that cemetery  Rev Barker preached a short sermon in our home & with heavy hearts we left our Vic boy & came back home & Willard left for home  the rest stay with us to nite  Clem Greig a friend of Vic is with us to nite  we gave Roy all Vics clothes a big box full & his watch & other trinkets  I put our auto in our own garage
