Condolence From: Colette Saufley
Condolence: Dear Jerry (and family), We are so sad for your loss but so happy at the thought of Vera being with her LORD and Savior. She walked closely with Him in this life. She is one soul that I will NEVER forget. A prayer warrior, she offered up some of the most beautiful and fervent prayers for our John when he was in Iraq and our young family while we awaited his return. Jerry, you shared in many of those prayers, for which we were eternal grateful. Thank you. And thanks be to God for Vera's example of tender loving care for a family she barely knew. Though she faced life's challenges with grit, she always had a smile to share. Such a dear, dear gal; I am so glad her life touched ours. Wishing you comfort and peace as you carry on without your soulmate, Jerry. Much love, Colette (for the Saufleys)

Condolence From: David W McNulty
Condolence: May you find rest, peace and joy in the presence of the Lord. Our prayers for the family.


We give back, to You, O God, those whom You gave to us; You did not lose them when You gave them to us, and we do not lose them by their return to You. Your dear Son has taught us that life is eternal and love cannot die. So death is only a horizon, and a horizon is only the limit of our sight. Open our eyes to see more clearly, and draw us closer to You, that we may know that we are nearer to our loved ones, who are with You. You have told us that You are preparing a place for us; prepare us also for that happy place, that where You are we may also be always, O dear Lord of life and death. Amen

- William Penn, 1644-1714 -

May God bless you and comfort you in your time of sorrow.

Condolence From: Dan and Sharon Semic
Condolence: We are saddened for Jerry's loss of his beloved wife Vera. He
was a devoted husband during Vera's long hospitalization. As a couple they relied on the Lord for strength. Vera was a joy to visit. She loved to sing the old hymns of the church. She had a wonderful gentle sense of humor that lightened difficult times. We will miss her and we pray that God holds Jerry close to his side in his days ahead.
