Condolences

    My heart is heavy but full of gratitude…. This is the man that blessed and baptized me… I will be eternally grateful for all that he was and is.. I look forward to our meeting again in future days! My love to all of you!

  • I loved Royce and Joyce. They were my across the street neighbors for 12 years. Since his sweet wife Joyce passed away, I have visited with Royce often. He was always fun to visit with and had a good story to share every time I visited with him. I miss Royce’s smiling face in the garage across the street.

  • To Mr. Beydler’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from this promise that we can see our loved ones we have lost in death again. (Acts 24:15)
