Dennis and family, We are so sorry to hear about your Mom passing away. As I read her life story, she led a remarkable life and was deeply loved. I see the hymns that were chosen for her and what a touching remembrance, these are wonderful hymns that celebrate a life of love and service. I was reading the verse about "I'm Free" and noted that those of you that will miss her dearly are reminded to be at peace, as she is. We are thinking of you and praying for your comfort. In His peace and grace she now resides. Your friends, Chris & John Beckmann

Chris & John Beckmann Jul 6 2012 12:40 PM

Jerry and Family, We will remember Linda as a sweet and happy soul, ready to brighten each moment with a smile and a laugh. She deserves the rest God has now accorded her. May He enrich you with the peace that only He can give, to guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. You remain near to our thoughts and remembered in our prayers. God bless you all.
