Ancestor funeral card

Sorry about doing another blog post about my great, great, great grandpa (Henry Grimm Sr), but cool things keep coming up.  Thanks to Mark Grimm (Morton, IL) for giving me this "funeral service" card from 1904.  This is about 3" wide and 6" tall and must have been handed out at his funeral service.

This is the man who fought Indians at the end of the Civil War, and was wounded twice with arrows (which are still on display in Topeka Kansas, see previous blog post).  He later gave his life to Jesus, and was a successful farmer/rancher in Volland, Kansas (where his farmstead still stands to this day).  See previous blog post.
