  • Dan Lehman Nothing but sweet memories of Aunt Dee. Quick with a smile and always able to handle Max with her great sense of humor.
  • Cheryl My heart goes out to the family! Longevity is certainly a blessing, and death at any age is too soon. God shares our pain and views death as an enemy! (1 Corinthians 15:26) God will soon eliminate this enemy, and no one will have to deal with the pain it brings. May this hope bring the family comfort during this difficult time.

  • Matthew T. Acker My Grandmother passed away on the Holy Day recognized on the Catholic Church's calendar as The Ascension of the Lord. My Grandfather previously passed away on Nov. 2nd, All Saints Day. The Lord truly works in mysterious ways. Very symbolic. Driving into work this morning, having heard the news of my Grandmother's passing a few minutes earlier, I received great comfort and peace looking at the brilliant sun rise, the dawning of a beautiful new day. I imagined my Grandparents being reunited once again in an embrace with our risen Lord. Within the same time period I recently read these comforting words from the gospel of Mark 5:22-42. Within this passage the following words jumped out to me that I wanted to share with you...spoken by Jesus..."Daughter, thy faith has saved thee. Go in peace, and be thou healed of thy affliction." Later in this reading we hear our Lord say, "Do not be afraid, only have faith." Indeed we do not have to live in fear...we do not have to be afraid. The victory is already won. It is this faith that we hang on to that my Grandmother had that makes all things possible and, through the power of our Lord, can heal all afflictions and make all things new. Although we, as a family, are sad that we will not see her again in this world, we rejoice and celebrate her new, healthy, eternal life with our Lord and her reunion with loved ones who have gone before her. We can confidently say "Where O death is your victory?" "Where O death is your sting?" My prayer is that my Grandmother will have eternal peace and happiness with our Lord and that the entire family may be comforted and find warmth and peace with our Lord and with family and friends.
