Memories Timeline


  1. Our deepest condolences. The Bible offers a hope to see our loved ones again. Rev 21:3,4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”

  2. Mary Hoel of Loveland sends her condolences. I knew Emily briefly as she was a friend of June Klopfenstein’s and the three of us would have coffee together. She was at my house several times. A very happy person.
