John Skutski

Please allow me to extend my heartfelt condolences for the recent loss of your loved one. I, too, have lost a family member and feel that pain.I was comforted by the realization of the resurrection hope that was promised at Acts 17:31 in the Bible where God furnished a guarantee to all men in that He resurrected his Son from the dead. Since the word resurrected means a “restanding to life” our loved ones would be sleeping in death. Jesus said this when referring to his friend Lazarus at John 11:11; “Lazarus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.”With such wonderful prospects for the return of the dead, the Bible speaks comfortingly how they will return to a cleansed earth, a new world of God’s making, to be joined with their loved ones. If I can be of further comfort to you, please feel free to write to me at the above address. I would love to answer any questions that you might have. Be assured of my deepest sympathy.

Colleen Hanna Warren

Daddy, It's been over a month now that you have been gone and I miss you sooo much. The thing I am comforted by is that you are putzin around in heaven with Mom. I will always keep you close in heart and in the forefront of my mind. I think about you everyday and will love you always!

Well it now has been a little over two years since you left this earth. Someday's its seems like yesterday others is seems so much longer. I still have a huge hole in my heart. Some people just don't get it. But I know you would. We developed a special bond that I will always treasure. There are so many places I go where it reminds me of you. I am learning to smile more now instead of crying remembering the wonderful times we shared. I finally went to school for Medical Assistant. I have made Deans list every class I hope you would be proud. I keep you at the forefront of my mind hearing your words that I can do anything I put my mind too! I love and miss you so much Daddy. Until we see each other again.
