I was sorry to read about the loss of your beloved family member. May the thought at Psalm 90:10 that speaks about our lifespan being 70 years or 80 if we are especially strong bring some comfort. It appears your family member had special mightiness to enjoy additional beautiful years.

Dear Dutch, Terry, Darla, Melanie and Families,

Please accept our sincerest condolences in the passing of your beloved wife and mother. I was hoping to visit with you all at the funeral home, but I didn't want to take my Dad out in the storm. Dad is now residing with us temporarily until recently discovered mold in his apartment is remediated.

May the love of your family, friends and your devout faith in our Lord give you strength to carry on in the days ahead.

Always remember, it's not the end, but a new beginning and the comforting words of "til we meet again." I always envision Jesus grasping our one hand and our son Charlie gripping the other hand to welcome us home.

Love to all and God's peace.

John and Kim
