image for Lots of Pretty Flowers at Ernest Keats Funeral
Dem flowers was real purdy.

The Paducah Sun - Although Ernest Keats was a reasonably beloved member of at least half of his family, the floral arrangements at his Friday funeral service dominated conversation during the post-funeral all-you-can-eat buffet luncheon at the home of Keat's' niece, Maudie Mudd.

'I had a real nice talk with Brother Verber about how, if I remember correctly, Ernie or Bernie, I always forget, looked so natural amid all those pretty mums, tulips, roses, carnations, pansies and baby's breath,' Mudd said. 'They were really nice. Not too showy, but still really just a beautiful sight with all that variety of color and smells. You know what? I should have worked in a flower shop.'

Keats' Uncle Leonard told the Banner that he had brought the Forget-Me-Nots and Cousin Louise had brought the yellow hibiscus.

Family members agreed that it was quite a tragedy that the Hawaiian daisies were probably just thrown out after the ceremony was over and also that Keats was dead.

'I just wish we could have saved those daisies', stated Keats' Momma.
