Ron was a beloved member of St. Pauls Lutheran Church for many years, and a devoted custodian. I understand that he dearly missed his wife, Sally, and we can rejoice that he is now reunited with her and at peace. I was glad to have had the opportunity to visit with him in the nursing home, and only last month was able to meet with him and bring him communion. May his family and friends find comfort and strength in Christ promise of forgiveness and resurrection to new life. Pastor Bill Callister.

SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 2:29-33 (Nunc Dimittis)

"Lord, now you let your servant go in peace.
Your Word has been fulfilled.
My own eyes have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared in the sight of every people.
A light to reveal yourself to the nations,
and the glory of your people Israel.

Rest eternal grant him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.

My sincere sympathy to the family. Ron was a great person and is now happy and reunited with his BRIDE. I am sure they are having a fun time. He will be missed by all who knew him.
