The Everlasting Light
Those we love must someday pass
Beyond our present sight…
Must leave us and the world we know
Without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle,
Their lovely light will shine
To brighten up another place
More perfect…more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven,
Where they shine so warm and bright,
Our loved ones live forevermore
In God’s eternal light.
May God comfort you during this difficult time….
Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
Jana, Jennifer, Abby and Cooper Family- We were saddened to hear of your father/grandfather’s passing; and hope you take comfort in the memories and love that surround you.
With deepest sympathy, Gina and Drey Surgener
Jana (and family),
Work will prevent me from seeing you today or tomorrow, but I wanted you to know you have my heartfelt thoughts and prayers. Know I’m thinking about you, and hoping you find peace in the great love and wonderful memories you have of your dad. Take care. Lisa B.
Our deepest, heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of such a beloved man. May God comfort you in your hour of need.
We are so sorry for you loss. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
In these days of mourning and grief Sue and I join you in remembering Bob for the joy and love he brought to others. The Saturday evenings in study together, the Wednesday nights of working in the kitchen, the elders meetings, all were times when Bob’s love, grace, and insights were wlecomed. We pray God’s love and comfort will be with you all in these days. Blessings as you carry on life with the same intensity Bob enjoyed.
