but the builder of all things is God.

Another Trip to California

Thank you all for praying for my family this
week as we had to say good bye to my dear
She entered into glory to meet her Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ late Sunday night.

She was loved by many and she ministered
to multitudes.
We will miss her very much.

We are praying for your family to have a sweet time of remembrance of your loved ones. Rejoicing in the eternity of love that will never be cut short by death, by the gracious, loving, amazing death of the One who became the propitiation for our sins, and made reconciliation with God possible.
Another link in the heavenly chain made even stronger.
We love you all, and are sorry to hear of your loss. But look forward to the gain for all eternity and His glory by it.
Much love,
Lisa, for the Hellwig family

What a wonderful testimony she apparently left behind! So sorry that death parts us from loved ones even if it is just for a while. May you be comforted knowing she is rejoicing with the Savior!

Deepest sympathy to you and yours - but I'm sure a very happy reunion for your sweet mother-in-"love".

Oh Christa - I am so sorry for your loss and for the empty place that this will leave in the heart of your family.

I know your faith will ease this and help you to cope and understand - but still it hurts.

You are wonderful to share this losss with us all so that we can send up prayers for your family.

Better days are ahead - (it will just take a while) ~~~

love to you and yours-
