Condolences

  • Dear kids, what wonderful memories of your dad while all living, farming, and “playing” in Wenden. Your dad was really a kind person and so good to my Dustin after his dad was killed. I will always appreciate your family for that. We have lost another “old farmer”, heaven must be getting full. One of my fond memories, is playing golf with your dad, and even though he kind of fudged on his score card, he was truly a great person to be with. I will always hold him in my heart for being the good person he was.

  • Fond memories of Mr. Chuck from all the way back when I was a teenager. It’s comforting to know his family was with him when he embarked on his next journey and I wish you all well.

  • To Mr. Urrea’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from Jehovah God’s promises in the Bible. Revelation 21: 3, 4 and John 5: 28, 29 show that there will soon be a time when there will be no more sickness or death, and we can see our loved ones we’ve lost in death again. Please accept my deepest condolences.
