Memorial card for Arthur La Verne Holmes (d. 3/25/1917) with the image of an angel carrying a child heavenward. Above the angels head is the wording "The Angel of Peace." The poem reads:
We had a little treasure once,
He was our joy and pride,
We love him, ah! perhaps too well,
For soon he slept and died.
All is dark within our dwelling,
Lonely are our hearts today,
For the one we loved so dearly,
Has forever passed away.
