  1. May you find comfort in the memories that are yours to cherish always, and strength in the companionship of those who share your loss…. I have learned never to underestimate the healing power we all have. It is always there to be used for the highest good. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5:4) May it be a source of inner strength to know that there’s a loving God watching over you, and that, throughout this time of need, He’ll stay close by your side. I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.-2Timothy 4:7. As for me, I will lie down that I may sleep; I shall certainly awake, for Jehovah himself keeps supporting me. -Psalms 3:5

  2. We are saddened by the passing of our neighbor and friend June of 35 years. She has left this earth and is with our Lord and in the comfort of His hand. You have our deepest sympathy and know you all are in our prayers. May God’s love guide you all in these days of sorrow.

  3. We are so sorry hearing the loss of your mother. We lost our mother Ruth a few years ago and know how painful is is to have them gone from your lives. June and Bob were delightful relatives to know in our childhood. Bob was so funny and June so sweet. We have fond memories of their visits in my mother’s kitchen. We hold those memories close to our hearts. Sincerely, Judy Riech Coe and Carl Riech
