Paul, Dale & Karen and families
May the love of family and friends soften your sadness and the many cherished and loving memories of your mom bring you comfort and peace. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Paul, Dale, Karen and your families, our sincerest sympathies to you upon the death of your dear Mom. I have wonderful memories of your mom and dad and your younger selves at your farmhouse and at St. John's. She was a lovely, gentle lady whose presence was always a blessing. Her faith in Jesus guided her through her marriage, raising a family and I'm quite confident in her death also. And because of that strong and certain faith she died in the hope of eternal life granted us by the birth, death and resurrection of our Lord Christ. "We do not grieve as the rest of people who have no hope..." (St. Paul) We do grieve the loss of loved ones but we live in great expectation for the final resurrection when all God's beloved children will be together. God's peace and love. Pastor Joel & Dawn Sarrault— Rev. Joel & Dawn Sarrault, December 29, 2021
