My deepest sympathy to the whole family

Barb Klenz and kids Mar 19 2018 12:00 AM

Morland,
I am so sorry I cannot be there to give you a hug of encouragement.  I know from experience you are exhausted but not regretting one minute or one thing as you so faithfully stood by.  You were one-of-my favorite couples I met in the church, senior citizens and around-town.  I have thought so much about you after moving away and said many prayers for strength.  Praise our Lord, we will see them again where she will be rediscovering being without those restless legs and other problems.  Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.  Travel this new pathway ahead for you hand-in-hand with your Lord and family.  There are no pathways as each-of-us has our own single one to travel.  God bless you and your precious family.  

Father, I-am-only human.  I need-the-touch of-human-
companionship.  Sorely-I-miss this-one-I love.
I pray, O Jesus Thou wilt reveal-to-me unseen-presences.  Help-me to-know how-close my-loved-one is for-I-know she cannot-be far-
away.
Make real-to-me contact-of spirit-to-spirit re-establishing lost-fellowship for-
which my-heart-yearns.  Give-to-me faith to shine through-my-tears.
Plant peace-and-hope within-my-heart. Point-me-to joy for the-great-reunion. Until then, enable-me-to live as-happily-as possible and worthily-of-those who-are-gone.
In the name-of-Him who-is-the Lord-of-life, I pray.
Amen-and-amen

Our loving grandmother, the day you left,
our hearts filled-with-pain, it felt-like-a theft.
We feel-so-much sorrow, deep-is-our grief;
now you're-not-suffering, that's-a-relief.

We hope sincerely you rest-in-peace,
our-love-for you shall-never-cease.
We miss you so-much deeply-and-dearly,
We'll remember-your-voice forever-and-clearly.

For-all-of us, you-were-our foundation,
such a beautiful-life deserves a standing-ovation.
Thank you, Grandmother for selflessly sharing;
such a-loving-grandmother, thoughtful-and-caring.
