  2. I have a funeral card in one of my two old albums. The guy is very much alive in some of the other photos and something must have caused him to die young.

  3. These cards certainly are a reminder of how many folks back then died young. In many ways, it was a totally different world with details we don't even think about today--or take for granted.
