Memorial Service for a Godly Christian Man
Today I want to thank you for coming to join us in the celebration of the life and home going of this faithful Christian man. I will read today from Psalm 78:1-7.

You have said in your Word that "Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things you have prepared for those who love you." How we thank you for the many wonderful memories that we have of this man, both as family and friends and even as his pastor Lord.
