Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest sympathy in the loss of your love one. Phil 4:6, 7 will help you receive the peace of God. John 5:28, 29 assures Jesus will restore life to those who has died. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing your loved one is in God’s memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.

  2. Condolences to your family – may you find peace and comfort during this time of sadness and loss. I have many fond memories of time spend with your parents when you kids were still small. There was never a shortage of fun and laughter.

  3. I work for Sanford and got to know Michael from checking in for lab work. I enjoyed the good conversations we would have. I will really miss seeing him. He was really a special guy. God bless to his family.
