AELICK— In memory of Mom and Dad, Elgin Aelick, February 8, 1986 and Florence Aelick, December 13, 2014

When someone you love becomes a memory,

That memory becomes a treasure.

Love Anna and Wayne

NEWBY- SPRY- In memory of the Newby family of Rockville and Don, Alberta and Lynn Spry.

Never forgotten,

Jack Witty

BROWN—In loving memory of Goldwin Brown.

Those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near.

Still loved, still missed and very dear.

What we keep in our memory is ours forever.

Peggy, Ken and family.

CHARWELL—In loving memory of a wonderful, caring husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Bill Chatwell. January 26, 1931 to March 28, 2017.

It all began with family and ended with a legacy..

He didn’t have much to give you

In ways of worldly goods

Yet he left behind a treasure

He hoped you understood.

With a shake of his eye

His words stood for something

No man could deny.

The lessons that he taught you

Should you need a second look

Are stored in our heart

You won’t find them in a book.

Stand up for what you believe in

And fight for what is right

Keep your word and your promises

And what’s important, clearly in sight.

Follow your heart, but remember,

To be thoughtful of your mind

Because your intuition will warn you

When things are out of line.

But most of all remember

How much you meant to him

And the light of your father’s memory

Will never flick dim

Loving you forever

Always in our hearts,

Wife Vera, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


HARASYM–In loving memory of our sweet Tinkerbell, October 19, 2010 – March 13, 2015.


When God calls little puppies to dwell with Him above,

We humans always question the wisdom of His love.

For no heartache can compare with the loss of one small “child”

Who does so much to make this world seem wonderful and mild.

Perhaps God tires – always calling the aged to His fold,

And so He picks a Rosebud before it can grow old.

God knows how much we need them and so He picks but a few

To make the land of heaven more beautiful to view.

Believing this is difficult, yet somehow we must try,

For the saddest word that mankind knows will always be “good-bye.”

And so when little pups depart,

We, who are left behind must realize how much God loves puppies…

For angels are hard to find.

Always in our hearts.

Love, Dad, Mom and family

Jesus shall reign wherever the sun does its successive journey run.

His Kingdom stretches from shore to shore till moons shall wax and wane no more. “When the son of man (Jesus) comes in his glory, and all the Angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. All people will be gathered before him and he will separate them as a shepherd separates sheep from goats, MAT. 25: 31 + 32.”

“This Jesus who was taken up from you into Heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into Heaven, ACTS 1:11.”

“Then I saw an Angel coming down from Heaven holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan and bound him for a thousand years……so he might not deceive the people any longer.” REV. 20:1-3.

“Those who had been killed for their testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshipped the beast, came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. REV. 20:4.”

“Whom (Jesus the Christ) heaven must receive until the time of restoration of all things about which God has spoken by the mouth of all his prophets,” ACTS 3:21.

“And the stone that destroyed the image (symbolical for worldly kingdoms) became a great mountain that filled the whole earth…. The mountain that fills the whole earl is the Kingdom that the God of Heaven will set up,” DAN. 2:34, 35+ 44.”

“The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion shall eat straw like the ox….. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my Holy mountain, IS. 11:6-9, 65:25.”

“Everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it and holds fast my covenant (the decalogue) these (including gentiles) I will bring to my holy mountain.” IS. 56: 6+7.

As symbolism in the bible is consistent, the holy mountain is symbolic for the Kingdom of God. See also REV. 17:9+10.

“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, MAT. 6:10.”

Jesus will return to setup the Kingdom of God on earth. REV. 20 reveals that this is a period that will last for one thousand years. This period is usually called the millennium, but it is also called the messianic age, because it is the time when the Messiah (Jesus) will reign on earth.

It is called the Holy Mountain and the time of restoration of all things. It is called the Sabbath because there will be rest and peace on earth (see also IS. 14: 3+7 and HEBR. 3+ 4).

We are now in this last sliver of the 6,000 years that precedes this millennial Sabbath.

Do you want to enter that period of peace and happiness when Satan does not deceive people into murder, stealing, lying, sexual immorality, etc. When even predators don’t kill other animals, when harmful insects don’t destroy fruits, no crop failures and the earth will produce abundantly? Then you must obey the conditions. Take hold of God’s covenant and start sanctifying God’s Sabbaths (Friday sunset till Saturday sunset) and that is thus says the Lord.
