Karl's Death Certificate



Grandpa Karl Nielsen Pedersen often voiced this Lords Prayer to his children and grandchildren.

"Thou no gods shalt have but me.
Before no idol bend the knee.
Take not the name of God in vain.
Dare not the Sabbath day profane.
Give to thy parents honor due
Take heed that thou no murder do.
Abstain from words and deeds unclean.
Steal not, for thou by God art seen.
Tell not a willful lie, nor love it
What is thy neighbor's do not covet".
