Condolence & Memory Journal

I just want to say how special of a friend Herbie was to me, I started with him at Southland Ambulance in 1984, he is why I am such a caring dispatcher now. He taught me so much I will be forever grateful. Some did not understand him or his rough exterior but he is just a big ole teddy bear on the inside. I will forever remember him. He was loved!

Although we couldn't personally be there, our thoughts and prayers certainly were.
As we grieve for ourselves, we rejoice that our loved one is with the Lord and enjoying heaven's beauty and the music that he so loves.
May God comfort and bless each of you.

F.I.L. aka Father-in-Law

I remember the first time we met. On I-65, you came to pick us up as our trusted jeep waterpump quit. As I saw you driving towards us, I also saw a dog that looked to be driving, better known as Bubby. My wonders of amazement between you and Sherry over Bubby. Bubby was a good blind dog, well, a short dog. Your daughter Gina will miss you much.

The Comfort of Christ's Coming
13 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. 14 Since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, in the same way God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. 15 For we say this to you by a revelation from the Lord: We who are still alive at the Lord's coming will certainly have no advantage over those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the archangel's voice, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are still alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Posted by Sandy Lee    December 12, 2008
