are nicely laminated obituaries
from the local newspapers.
These are often called "tribute" or "memorial" cards, but are most often used as a bookmark for a favorite passage in the Bible. Commercial companies will laminate the obituary and send a copy free to the contact person for the deceased with the sales pamphlet to purchase more of them to give as thank-you gifts (they include additional memorial services & products). Don Counts submitted 2 of his parents and I have included one of my grandfather back in 1959.
