Words cannot express the gratitude I feel in my heart to everyone who attended Pastor Stan's "Celebration of Life" service. He truly desired that this occasion not be a somber one, but be an expression of THANKSGIVING because of the Wonderful Life he was blessed with, and JOY because of the promise we have in an Everlasting Life with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I know that it wasn't always easy to do that - because we all miss him so much - but I feel that we truly rose to the occasion together, hand-in-hand, to give thanks for this extraordinary man, his extraordinary life, his extraordinary love, and the extraordinary impact that he had on so many. I feel that I can speak with heartfelt confidence on behalf of Pastor Stan, as I picture him with his beautiful smile, saying "job well done" and giving us his signature "Two Thumbs-Up"!
Love, Pastor Geri
