Funeral notes Martha Kroeker

Les Kroeker. Aunt Martha nudged me to accept Jesus 
"Martha," Jesus said, " You don't have to wait until then.  I am the Resurrection, and I am Life Eternal. Anyone who clings to me in faith, even though he dies, will live forever.  And the one who lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"

John 11:25‭-‬26 TPT

Afterglow poem 

A short funeral poem by Helen Lowrie Marshall about happy memories living on after a loved one has gone.


I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who grieve, to dry before the sun;
Of happy memories that I leave when life is done

Sisters tribute
She was depressed. 
Can't say goodbye just see you later
Erna traveled together
Scrabble was a challenge
Lots of hiking and walking
2 weeks ago she had a wonderful dream. The angels took you there. We will miss you. 
Yolanda Quirung my aunt loved us. We had her in Mexico as a school teacher
She was a good strict teacher.
Dad Jake teased her on the narrow roads. 
Lived with her for one summer. She decluttered all the time. 
Worked together on newsletters for 
Rose Wiebe 35 years of friendship. Her clients felt safe with her. We went hiking in Pinawa knowing this could be the last time. She read missionary letters. If you have not made that commitment to follow Jesus do it today
Elsie. We are grateful to all the friends that loved her

O Praise The Name (Anástasis)
I cast my mind to Calvary
Where Jesus bled and died for me.
I see His wounds, His hands, His feet.
My Savior on that cursed tree
His body bound and drenched in tears
They laid Him down in Joseph's tomb.
The entrance sealed by heavy stone
Messiah still and all alone
O praise the name of the Lord our God
O praise His name forever more
For endless days we will sing Your praise
Oh Lord, oh Lord our God

Martha and I had a special relationship. Proof reading and editing for each other. 1994 she joined SEMC
She wore a bright dress to brighten her environment
Jesus's death was devastating and then the joy of the resurrection followed by I'm going away. 
In 2008 we prayed about macular degeneration. The dark clouds lifted. 
She shared with her SS class that she was depressed. Communication is necessary. 
Where is God? She died at home alone. 
All authority has been given to Jesus He'll be with us to the end of the age. I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS. 
You shall call him God With Us Always
This era will end when Jesus returns. The risen one is alive. 

Jesus is with you whenever. Shopping. Driving. Through all the stages of life.  I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS. 
Be encouraged. Jesus was with Martha. She heard the voice of her shepherd escorting her into eternal joy. 
There are times when we fail. A book is never finished but there is a time to publish. 
Know that Jesus is with you. Jesus made a partnership commitment.

How Great Thou Art
