Mystery Photo- John Borgos- Faribault Co, MN

I recently obtained this interesting photo in an antique shop. It is of a floral arrangement, and the ribbon reads "At Rest".

On the back side, someone wrote "Flowers of John Borgos  March 4th, 1911    Photo by C.J. Hansen"

After a brief bit of research, I find that John Borgos, resident of Faribault County, Minnesota died 24 February, 1911. 

The date of this photo would indicate that these flowers are from his funeral. 

This neat old cabinet card, which does have some age & wear, should really be reunited with a family member who will treasure it.
