Memories Timeline


  1. Please accept our sincere condolences. May the words quoted from this song bring you a measure of comfort as it did for us.
    “If a man or woman should die, can they live again?
    Hear the promise God has made:
    He will call; The dead will answer.
    They shall live at his command.
    For he will have a longing
    For the work of his own hand.
    So have faith, and do not wonder,
    For our God can make us stand.
    And we shall live forever,
    As the work of his own hand “(Job 14:13-15)
