Memories Timeline


  1. Gail, Pat, Jerry, Gary and Family,
    We were so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing this morning. Our loss is certainly heaven’s gain.

    May the Lord fill you with His peace and give you the grace that you need to face this empty place in your family here on earth. Today was her ‘first day of forever that will last forevermore’.

    I know the Lord lets Rory greet all the ‘home folks’ when they get to heaven and I’m sure he was there with Jesus to welcome your Mother home. What a blessed reunion we all have to look forward to.
    All we can really do for you is to share your pain and hurt together. Our prayers will continue with each of you.
    Our Love in Jesus,
    Royce and Gwenda
