Memories Timeline


  1. Sorry for the loss of your love one. John 5:28, 29 assures Jesus will restore life to those who has died. Phil 4:6, 7 will help you receive the peace of God. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing your loved one is in God's memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.

  2. Jim and family, So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have a lot of fond memories of her shuttling my sister and I to Immanuel grade school. I also enjoyed talking with her on Sunday's at church in her later years. She was always so proud of you and eager to tell me how you were doing. John Frazier
