Olinger Mortuaries - Denver, CO - Memorial Card, c. 1950


(3 1/4 x 5 In) This is an original vintage Memorial card from 1950. The cover shows the Olinger Mortuaries building at 16th and Boulder, Denver, Colorado. In Memoriam of "Grace A. Roberts, Passed Away October 6, 1950. Interred at Crown Hill Cemetery"

"Your presence here today is both a tribute to the departed, and a ministry to the living. That these reverent and beautiful services may enshrine in loving memory the character and spirit of the one whom we assemble here to honor is the primary purpose of this memorial. But we are here quite as much to give consolation, comfort and companionship to those who henceforth shall know a loved one only in memory. 

That this memory may be one of beauty, of inspiration, and solace, let us join in this last tribute not with a sense of irretrievable loss, but with the thought that out of this experience there shall come something precious. . . something that shall be to all who meet here today a guiding star and a promise. Not the end but the beginning, of a lifetime of beautiful memories."

The card is in EXCELLENT condition, light wear at corner tips.
