A Funeral Today
Today Warren and I have the
honor of attending a Memorial
Service for a man we respect
so very much.
This man was the Elder for our
church until he was 90 years of
Everyone in our fellowship loved
In the last few years he has stayed
closer to his retirement home and
we have not seen much of him.
So...today we will honor Leonard's long
life with his children, grandchildren
We will remember his wisdom,
his love for the Lord and
his sweet gentle spirit.
We will not be able to avoid
thinking of his dear Margie
who got to Heaven a few years
ago. She was such a gentle southern
lady. So often someone in our church
will quote Margie or say, "What would
Margie say about that?".
It would be o.k. with me if people
remembered Warren and I so fondly
at the end of our earthly life.
This couple was integral to who our
church was during the years they
were with us.
I can imagine that there was
much rejoicing in Heaven when
Rejoice with us in the celebration
of the life of a Saint!
