  7. Kristen and Family, I am sorry for your loss, But I know that the Great Comforter will carry you through this time. His plans for our lives are perfect and though we do not understand the turns it takes, rest in him and He will see you through. I leave you with the words to a song… See you Later Good-bye is not forever, to a loved one saved by grace, It’s more like see you later, for someday I’ll see your face. Though I miss you here below to share life’s simple plans. My sorrow is not hopeless, I’ll see you in that fair land. And so I’ll say see you later, my friend. I’ll join you soon in Heaven, where time has no end. Good-byes will not be spoken when eternity begins, So I’ll say see you later, until we meet again. When my life’s work has ended, and the Lord has called me home, Together there forever, no more parting sorrows shone. Though it seems so long before I’ll see your smiling face, My hope is His promise, my trust in His saving Grace. Because of Calvary, Rich and Lynn and Kids Leland,Lisette,Laurn, Loralee and Lucas
