Memories Timeline


  1. To the family,

    Please accept my condolences on the loss of your loved one. May the words at Psalms 34:15, 18 comfort you during your time of loss.

  2. Ruth,
    You and Walter were the very first to meet and encourage us to move to our wonderful neighborhood in High Oaks. Traci and I loved the way you both kept watch over our home. It was so endearing to see Walter quietly walking in the front yard just enjoying the beauty of a cool fall morning or warmth of a budding spring day. I suspect he was remembering with fondness the early days you and he spent time walking together. It is with sadness that we hear of his passing and yet joy in knowing he is at peace with the Lord. I pray that as each day passes you will be comforted knowing his spirit is always close by and may you be reminded of his enduring love for you in every new budding flower you see.

    With our deepest sympathy
    Richard and Traci

  3. Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one.
    At a sad time as this, the Bible gives us comfort at Revelation 21:3,4 where God promises to rid the earth of sickness, sorrow and death. What a wonderful time when we no longer have to face these enemies.
    I hope this scripture gives you some consolation.
