Second Ass't A.M. Harmon, "If I can control my feelings I would like to speak a few words. My labors with Bro Allred has endeared us to each other. We have worked together continuously in this I am voicing the sentiment of all the officers and members of the Sunday School. Bro Allred was a leader in both religious and amusement pastimes and always punctual.
Heber F Burton, Stake superintendent of Sunday School, said: "Brother Allred, to whom we have assembled to pay tribute, is a good man and but few are as good; he was so active, so generous, and yet we would not call him back.Brother Allred has been faithful; let it be said that the children and families keep him in mind as their life"s star, as did the wise men, which star led them to Christ. we also love and respect Bro Allred. He then read resolutions adopted by the Afton Sunday School last Sunday in honor of the deceased.
Song, "Guide me to Thee" by Mrs. Annie Hood and company of the young ladies.
Pres Geo. Osmond: In facing this large congregation recalls the necessity of the Spirit of the Lord; my sympathy goes out to the bereaved family.Bro. Allred has a good; record; he has been faithful and full of integrity; he was truly a Ward man who always preformed his share, and I wish men of his stamp were not so scarce; he was a teacher indeed; proficient war clerk, musical director, whole souled and devoted his life to the work of God. Life does not connence with our first breth of mortality, nor does it end with our last breth here on earth; our life's duty should not take up all our time. Who are the rich? I would point to the man like Bro. Allred, they are they who are heaping up treasures and weath in Eternity. How glorious is the end and how few things he has to regret regarding his earthly acts. Brother Allred has left a legacy of an honorable name to his family, let them try to imitate his example and live to honor that name, ALLRED. I pray God to bless and comfort the bereaved family.
Duet by George Millard and wife.
Bishop Low of Afton said: "I imagine every heart in the house is tender and full of sympathy and love; I feel to say amen to what has been said of the departed; I feel that death is not the dreaded thing that I use to think it was, owing tot he greater knowledge that I have acquired through the study of the Gospel of Jesus Christ of which I am a member. I ask God to bless the family of Bro. Allred in their lonely hours of bereavement and through their lives.

Bp. Albert Barrus made a few closing remarks; said Bro. Allred was always at his post and he would miss him as much ,almost as any one; always felt to rely on him; he would neglect his own financial labors to fulfill his religious duties. Brother Allred is not idle now; he will have a great mansion in the Eternal kingdom.
