  • Great Uncle Joseph, never forgotten, may you rest easy knowing that we still care
    Public - Jenny - Friend - 23 April 2015
    Report 
  • To our Uncle Joseph Kennedy Brooks. We pray that through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ you will rise again in the resurrection, in glory, immortality and eternal life, to join our family once again in the eternal courts above. May all the blessings you would have received in life, had you been permitted to tarry, be pronounced upon you. We look forward to meeting you again, to honour your name. We feel of your spirit, and of the Holy Ghost, the surety of life after death. Til we meet again, our honorable brother. God be with you till we meet again.
