Testimonies of sympathy

Dear Monique, Ghislaine, and family, We know Raymond is with His Lord and is so happy to be in His presence. Raymond was a cheerful and fun-loving man and he will be missed by all who knew him here in Cedar Rapids. You will miss him too and we send our love and sympathy to you. Certainly the “coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” James 5:8. We believe it will not be long before we will join him in glory. My parents, Don and Betty Bilisoly, enjoyed visits with your family as they travelled and visited the saints in Canada. We still remember the useful “winch” dear Raymond built. He and Monique came to Newfoundland to put it in place on the hill where the cottage was. It would help pull the boats up from the lake to the cottage. What a great help that was! We love you all and will pray for you all during this time of change and loss. Thankfully, we do not sorrow as others do because, “thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 15:57

Our Deepest sympathy to Monique, Ghislaine and all the family in the home going of dear Raymond.
May you feel the everlasting arms of the Lord around you and may the God of all comfort be with you
Psalm 18: 30

Ron & June Dods

Dear Ouellet family,
We desire to express our sincere sympathy at this time of your grief. Those belonging to the Lord Jesus, do not grieve as others who do not have hope. We Rejoice that now our dear brother is with him who loved us and gave himself for us. We Rejoice too in thinking back how he Faithfully went on in ways pleasing to our Lord. We recall also how he endured in the face of persecution after he was saved. The record of much more faithfulness known only by the Lord himself, will be rewarded in the coming day of the Lord’s Glory. With much love in Christ Jesus our Lord.
