In God's Time

God has blessed me in many ways. He has also given me time to say my earthly good-byes. While I leave life as a human being in earthly life, I will be passing into an eternal heavenly body life.

Many of my loved ones already have prepared to meet me in their heavenly bodies. For those who do not know what happens when they die, I address this part of my goodbye.

God has provided the greatest prepaid gift for you.  You and I were born to die an eternal death. All of us sin - matters not how little or how much. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." -Romans 3:23
God's gift was his son, Jesus Christ.  John 3: 15-18, Jesus is the only one on earth who never sinned. He had to hang on a cross and shed his blood and die for our sins.  That was the beginning for you and I.  He arose again.  He ascended into heaven to prepare a place for us.  He is alive and will come again for all who believe.  He offers this precious gift - accept Him as your personal Savior; and there are so many who will help you understand and to show the way to grow in His love.  God has given His word, 'The Bible', to feed us and His comforter 'The Holy Spirit' when we accept Christ!

My life on earth has been a lot of ups and downs.  Wonderful memories of all I've known and loved.
Interment will be private at Wildwood Cemetery, Williamsport.
