SLEEPER Funeral Director JAMES KINSER, Assistant lola, Kansas, March 7,1933. DEAR FRIENDS: Patrons have frequently toW us that most folks would appreciate information on various services the pjiodern funeral director provides, and a so suggestions on what to do in time of need. ' ji' , We have long hesitated to do anything about it, however, for;fear of offending the! sensitive feelings of those we have been privileged to serve. But, as we learned more and more of the appreciation for this sort of information in ottler communities, we concluded that you might be just as much interested. It is a fact that most folks who call on us, know practically nothing about burial goods, or about the many things that must be done when the need arises. Of course, we try to relieve bur patrons of every possible detail of responsibility, in order to lighten their burden of gtief. We acivisethem as sincerely as we wouM like to be advised under similar circumstances. But this experience so frequently repeated, has convinced us that every person should find out about these things before necessity arises, while the mind is free to compare values carefully and to judge wisely. In our future messages we shall.try to give you some of this importanj; information. However, if you would prefer to get the information first-hand^or to ask any question, we shall be delighted to have you visit our mortuary.- '
