    My prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. I enjoyed working and knowing Freddie. He was a special person with a good heart. I know he will be sadly missed by his family.

    I found this and just thought of her. (our Mimi)
    Love Ursie

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid for me.
    I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way, I’ve found that peace at the end of the day.
    If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My Life’s been full, I savoured much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’ touch.
    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

    Bob, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I met Mary in January, but felt like I knew her much longer that I did. Sue told me so many stories and the great memories she has of their friendship. Keep your memories close and she will always be with you.

    My deepest condolences over your loss. Hold tight to your cherished memories. Lean on family and friends for support and look to Godโ€™s Word, the Bible, for comfort, peace and strength. At Isaiah 41:10 God gives us the assurance that He will fortify us and that He is with us and that He really will help us. “I will really keep fast hold of you with my right hand of righteousness”. He has also promised that our loved ones will be resurrected to life on paradise earth. Galatians 1:3; John 5:25,26; Revelation 21:3,4; Matthew 5:5. Take courage you are not alone. Heartfelt prayers are with you. Visit for more information.

    May God Bless…
