Do you remember when funerals were held in the home? Do you remember the mourning wreath, the Wake vigil, the candles, the cooling board, the curtains, the food and the quiet? Join Craig Kramer, Director of Kramer Funeral Home, at the Dyer-Botsford House in Dyersville as he recreates and tells the history of funerals in the home. Everyone welcome. Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library.
