(from Cloverdale) A large crowd attended the funeral of John Grimes at the home of his father, James Grimes, on the 19th. Just thirty-three years before on the 19th of July his mother passed to the Great beyond. John was raised here in this neighborhood and in Rogers and was a good natured, whole souled boy who had a host of friends who grieve to learn that his young life should come to an end so early. He was always loyal to those he loved and when the ravages of the disease that took him bore so heavily upon him he was ever patient and kept his suffering to himself to a great extent. His devotion to his only living brother was ever manifest with him and he was pleased to know that his last hours were to be spent with him and his family who had gone down when the summons came that he was critically ill. And to his one son he was a real pal while health permitted him to be with his loved ones. He was ever thoughtful for his aged father, begging him to not make the long journey down to see him since he was becoming aged and for his sister, and other dear ones. He would have faced any obstacle to defend them. He was so quiet and lovable, being loved by all who knew him, and we are glad to bring this news to all who knew him that he had the best of care in the hospital and all that were in any way connected with him loved him. We know and feel that it is well with John today by the smile on his face as he lay so peacefully in death.
