Charlotte & Teresa (and family) -

So sad to hear of your Dad's passing on the 3rd. He is a wonderful blessing (as are you) for our Church and community. Our Dads did so many things together - heroes of World War 2 in the Navy, working together in the Church, Odd Fellows, and Eagles. You can be proud of him in so many ways (and I know he's so proud of you.) You're in our thoughts, prayers, and love... God bless. (David & Linda

We are so sorry to learn of your loss. May you be comforted by the thought that, in a sense, our fond memories of those we have lost in death keeps them alive. They are also alive in Gods memory. The prophets tell us that one day those in Gods memory will be recovered from the grave and have the opportunity to live forever on a paradise earth. (Hosea 13:14 & Rev 21:3,4) May this give you a hope for the future that will ease the pain you have now.
