Condolence: To: Pastor Nath, Donna, Gerry, Natalie, Nathan and Kimmie,
I don't know where to start...it's so hard to believe that after meeting you and your family 40 years ago in Clarenville, things would come "full circle" as Grace said...and I'd be living next door to you again but this time with my husband. These past 3 years have been surreal - and yet so refreshing to be able to reconnect and become almost like a part of the family. Taking Natalie to Newfoundland last summer made her Nan and Pop so happy. Grace was so excited to have Lorne here - and sure enjoyed the times she and Nath took us to these tiny churches all around this area. Her love of God's Word was so evident in the recent Bible Studies we had. I'm positive that the study on "A Life God Rewards" was for her...and for all of us in that group...preparing us. Now we must carry on our lives without Grace on this earth...but we thank God that HE has made a way for us all to be reunited. We do not grieve as those who have NO hope. What a glad reunion some day.
Condolence: Our condolences to Nate, Kim, Donna and family.Grace will be remembered as a kind and compassionate servant of her God and saviour .She has touched and blest many lives in our community.A good and faithful servant. We are better having known her.
Condolence: Our family benefited from the love and hospitality extended by Grace and Nat when my mother, Myrtle McLellan, passed away 30 years ago. They opened their home to us and demonstrated the love of Jesus so generously. She will have a beautiful crown and Heaven will be rejoicing that another Saint has come home. Sincere sympathy to her family members.
Condolence: Pastor Vaters,Donna and Kim. So sorry to hear of Mrs. Vaters passing. Please accept our sincerest sympathies. Know you will be in our thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead.
'Absent from the body. PRESENT with the lord'
Condolence: "He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater" This hymn has been running through my mind every time I think of Grace.Which has been often in the past few weeks. She was such an encouragement to both of us in our ministry and we loved her sense of humour. As you move on in live with out "your Grace" may God give you an abundance of his grace, his love and his comfort.
"His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again."
Condolence: Grace read at our son’s service and said many words that I will hold close to my heart. Knowing her personal connection to babyloss only makes her service that much more meaningful.
Wishing you peace at this difficult time.
The Duncan family
