  8. Dear Bonnie, our Lord promises, ” I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.” Jer. 31,13. – May His peace, which transcends all understanding, fill your heart, as you grieve Don’s passing to be with the Lord, and as you try to cope with the void that his absence leaves behind. You remain in our prayers. Kurt & Hanna.

  9. Dear Bonnie, You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers as you mourn the loss of your husband Don, such a faithful servant of our Lord and King. His Lord will have said unto him, “Well done good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joy of the Lord.” May you find much comfort in the peace only our Lord can give to us, as well as the love and support of family and friends. God bless.

  16. Queridos Bonnie, Marta y Marcos, junto con toda la familia, queremos transmitiros nuestro cariño y afecto. Donald fue, y es todavía, un ejemplo de hombre usado por Dios, de ministro fiel a su llamado, y de esposo y padre ejemplar. Sabemos que por fin está en el lugar que Jesús preparo para él, y que estará feliz cantando a plena voz ante el trono De Dios, unida su voz a la de los ángeles y Los Santos que nos precedieron. Para vosotros deseamos la dulce y consuelo del Espíritu Santo. Nosotros no queremos ver esto como algo triste ( a pesar de la punzada en el corazón) sino como el final triunfante y feliz de una vida que deja en muchos una huella imperecedera, y que ha contribuido a llenar el cielo de “tristes ovejas huidas del redil”. Os queremos, y damos gracias a Dios por habernos permitido conocer y disfrutar a Donald. Un fuerte abrazo.
