Milan (Italy),


Jesus Christ stands at the bedside of an infirm man with one arm raised in blessing. The sick man clutches one hand to his chest, and holds the hand of the woman beside him with the other. A branch of lilies is on the floor next to the bed. Two angels surrounded by clouds look down upon the scene. The back of the card has an inscription memorializing the death of Olympe Tremblay. The inscription includes a passage from John's Gospel. Created by N.G. Basevi.


En souvenir de Madame Olympe Tremblay. Nee 1858 - Decedee, 16 Nov. 1937. 'Je suis la Resurrection et la Vie, celui qui croit en moi, meme s'il est mort, vivra.' Maman cherie merci pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour nous vos enfants a jamais reconnaissants. 'Au Ciel, Au Ciel, Au Ciel, j'irai la voir un jour.'
