Not Far

Mark 12:28-34

Today is All Saints Sunday—a day of remembrance for Christian people of every time and place. We celebrate the great communion of saints as we remember the dead, some known generally as members of the vast Church universal, and others whose names and cherished memories are treasured in the intimacy of our own hearts. Especially in our close memories, having joined the saints in eternity during 2017-2018, are:

Vicki Blakeslee
Vernon Clover
Lindy Langdon Cook
Gary Lee Dougherty
Matthew Fawver
Ramona Yvonne Kemp Blair
Rick Longyear
William Bradford Lott
Esther “Patty” Marquart
Robert H. Meyer
Lois Morgosh
Carol Nameth
Carol Yvonne Rathbun
Betty Jane Tanner
Alice Wallace

These saints are absent from the body of Christ on earth and present with the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
