Condolence from Vaughn and Kathy Rawding on January 30th, 2017 6:35 pm

Marilyn and family, Thinking of you all during this sad time,

Condolence from Claire Jospitre on January 30th, 2017 8:20 pm

I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Rest assured that he cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 34:18 which reads: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” Thus, while you await the Paradise where no one will be sick and die, may you lean on Jehovah God to cope with your separation from beloved Philip. (Psalm 37:29)

Condolence from Shawn and Karla on January 30th, 2017 9:03 pm

Dear Marilyn, Phil and Neil, very sorry for your loss. I will always remember Phil as a funny, patient and approachable guy, although he was a little intimidating to a kid if you didn’t know better. I think that was part of the fun of sitting around the kitchen table and talking to this big, gruff sounding guy who was not at all what you expected. I was sad to hear of his health issues and hope he is resting peacefully now. Lots of great memories at the Spurrs! Take care everyone.

Condolence from Rev Dr Doug Mailman on January 30th, 2017 9:42 pm

sorry for your loss.I will miss him at NQNH
