Please accept my sincerest condolences. You are all in my thoughts.
Rest in peace my oldest and dearest friend. You will be missed.
With Sympathy and Condolences for your loss.. Your Family is in our prayers .
Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free!
I follow the plan God laid for me.
I saw His face, I heard His call,
I took His hand and left it all…
I could not stay another day,
To love, to laugh, to work or play;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
And if my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss…
Ah yes, these things I, too, shall miss.
My life’s been full, I’ve savored much:
Good times, good friends, a loved-one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief –
Don’t shorten yours with undue grief.
Be not burdened with tears of sorrow,
Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.
I never got the privilege to get to know Debra but I leave you with this prayer in the knowledge that we will all be together again soon. This is a temporary separation. I also thank the Surnicki family for the wonderful people that they are. I am certain that her life was rich because of the family that surrounded her : Know that God does NOT rejoice in our suffering, but is ALWAYS present in it. He gives us strength to deal with whatever comes our way, but also works within the circumstances to make something better come out of it. We KNOW that God will take this tremendous loss, and mold it into a beauty that we could never have imagined. We know that we will be given NEW strength, a deeper, richer faith and closeness in relationships that wouldn't have otherwise happened. We will all honor her memory by bringing ourselves into new circumstances that are healthier for us, that she may live on THROUGH us, in Christ our Lord Jesus, Amen.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
