    We look forward to seeing Mom and Dad when Christ’s promised paradise is realized. We know God is loving and merciful and they are safe in God’s memory. Until then they are greatly missed. And our hearts are not the same without them. Our faith in God’s promises will keep us strong.
    I’m Loving Memory,
    Louis and Laina Lehner.
