Messages of Condolence

  1. S. Lee condolence:

    As some are sharing various Scriptures, I too wanted to share one with you.

    “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” (John 5:28, 29)
    With the loss of your beloved wife, I can only imagine how you are yearning to see her again. I hope you can make a little time to review the Scripture above.
    I hope that seeing for yourself that this resurrection hope is real, and making it your own, can give you some genuine comfort during this difficult time.
    Thank you for reading my message.

  2. James I. and Elaine Hajek condolence:

    I was very sad to read this morning of the passing of our good neighbor from the very first days when we moved to Brookfield in 1957. Mr. Wallenbecker was always a pleasure to talk with and especially about engineering, the technical stuff. With his lovely wife Carol they were truly good friends of my parents and now they can all be together again. All we have left are our happy memories of the past, peace!

Please share your thoughts ...
