Our Dad lived his life by the words our Lord Jesus taught us in
Matt 25: 34-36:
Then the King will say to those on his right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison, and you came to visit me.
Please join our family for a celebration of life service at Lakeside Lutheran Church on Saturday, May 13th at 11:00 AM followed by a time of food and fellowship at Meyer Hall as we continue to celebrate Dad’s life.
