Memories Timeline


  1. Dearest Joanne, Steven and the entire Papajan Family, we are sincerely heartbroken and very sorry for your loss. We send you our most heartfelt condolences. We pray that God will comfort you during this most difficult time. George was such a nice man and we're glad that we had the privilege and the pleasure of knowing him. He will be missed! Praying for you all. God Bless and be with you.

  2. I want to express my heartfelt condolences to the family. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort and peace through the loving and happy memories of your beloved George.
    May our Loving Heavenly Father, who is the God of all comfort, sustain you through this very sad time.
    (2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Psalms 83:18)
    He promises us that soon, "He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore." Revelation 21:3,4.
    May all of His promises give you a measure of peace.

  3. To all family and friends of the deceased,
    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort in the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4). In God's word we find the promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15). The Bible tells us where this happy reunion will take place (Psalm 37: 11, 29; Matthew 5:5). We are told why we die (Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 5:12), and that Jehovah, the God of the Bible (Psalm 83:18), will end death forever (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3,4). At John 8:32 Jesus said " and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free". For more information please visit the website
