Memories Timeline


  1. I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of your loved one. May God almighty father of tender mercies and all comfort continue to comfort you all (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). Please know that God has promised to completely remove death tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). Indeed we all eagerly anticipate the fulfillment of that promise. The Bible also provides assurance of a real hope of reuniting with our dead loved ones in the coming near future (John 5:25). The Bible truly is a source of comfort at a time like this. You can read it online and also learn further about God's purposes at

  2. Hello, Bridgett:

    So sorry to hear about dad. Unfortunately, I didn't find out from Marie until yesterday. Be well. My condolences to you and your family.

  3. Dear Annette,
    Even though it has been too many years since we have seen each other, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am to hear about your dad, and also Diane's husband Tom. Please send my warm wishes to your family. I have fond memories of you all and remember you as loving and caring and the best people. I wish I didn't live so far away so I could see you more but I'm glad to see you have each other. I will say a prayer for you all and please know that you are in my thoughts. I miss you and wish you the very best.
    Love from your friend,
    Maggie Kecher Stowe
