To the Bethel family, Our condolences for the loss of "Lorie". No matter the age or the health issues of our loved one, the permanence of death still causes sadness. That's why Good Friday and Easter are so important because we can be assured of a reunion with our loved one. Blessings, Wesley & Wilma

Bethel Kids, Grands and Greats, I forgot to say that I’m in Ottawa and feel badly that I’m unable to visit with you tonight. Lovingly, Joan

Dear Bethel Family, It is with sadness yet victory because of Jesus that I see you are parted for a time from your loved one. I remember a conversation with Lorie when I expressed shock over a terrible event caused by someone who professed to be a Christ follower. Lorie said…this is who we are, Joanie, when we get off the path. She humbly acknowledged that it is important that we walk closely with our Lord every day. She definitely made that her goal. May Christ Jesus comfort you and fill you with His gift of peace as you mourn and remember. Joan Hutchinson

Dear Kerry, Bill and Andy, I am so sorry to her of your mom’s passing. I have such lovely memories spending time as a child at your place during holidays, swimming in the pool and later corresponding with her on facebook! May she be with Uncle Bill in the palms of her Lord now! Condolences to your entire families, sending love and prayers to all.

We send our love and prayers for the Lord's comfort to cover you all. Sincere condolences to your family from the Gee family. What joy comes to us when we know it's for only a season of separation but that because of a relationship with Jesus you'll see her again in God's presence, together praising God for eternity. That's the great Comforter's promise. Blessings, David and Linda Gee
