As you lay your Wife, Mother, & Grandmother to rest, may it comfort you to know that she is in a much better place where there is no sadness, no suffering,and no pain.You knew you wouldn’t have her forever, but rejoice in God’s promise that you will see her again. I think of all of you so often as I am back living in Hutchinson and almost every day I drive past the “little” house on Severance St. where you Laurel, and Claris started your married life. Remember how cute it was then, it still is. Look back at all the moves and places your life together has taken you and what a blessing each life event you shared together was. As you gather tomorrow, celebrate her life and all she gave to each one of you. Carry her in your heart thru the rest of life’s walk, and take comfort in the fact that so many others are sharing in your loss, and you may continue to cling to them in the future for comfort, we are all only a heart beat away.
When we all get to Heaven, what a glorius day that will be!

We both have fond memories of Claris’s kindness toward us. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We will be with you in spirit on Tuesday.
