Resolutions of Respect
WHEREAS- It has been an inscrutable decree of our Allwise Supreme Commander to remove from our ranks by death our beloved comrade, Past Commander, Edmond J. Thayer, therefore be it-
RESOLVED- that in the death of Comrade E. J. Thayer, McCook Post has sustained the loss of an honored and beloved comrade, one who responded to his country’s call. "with a patriotism that was heroic", marched to the front, willing to suffer and die if need be, went without promise, without hope or reward, except that the nation might live, and we recognize that our irreparable loss is doubtless his infinite gain.
RESOLVED: That the community has lost a manly man of moral worth, a patriotic, loyal citizen.
RESOLVED: That we extend to the bereaved family our deepest condolence and most heartfelt sympathy.
RESOLVED: That the charter of the Post, and the chair of our deceased comrade be draped in morning for thirty days.
RESOLVED; That these resolutions be spread upon the records of McCook Post, that a copy be furnished the City Press for publication, and that a copy be forwarded to the family of our deceased Comrade.
