The funeral service was today in Canon City, Colorado, at Evangelical Free Church. It is a lovely church. One of several where Gleda made quite an impact.

I know it will be difficult for Vern and the family in the coming days ahead without Gleda. They will need our continuing prayers of support. After nearly 73 years of marriage together, there will be a huge loss, but God's grace is sufficient and His Holy Spirit is our compassionate Comforter. Our Lord promises to be near to the broken-hearted and He is the God of all comfort. I know, because Christ lives in me and He has comforted me since my precious wife passed away more than 12 years ago in 2011. I still miss her dearly every day, but I know I will see her again in Heaven and there will be a great reunion! Praise God!

May God's comfort and peace and love surround the Estes family at this time and in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. For believers, we do not grieve as those who have no hope. We know we will see our loved ones again who have died in Christ. All glory to God!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. - II Corinthians 1:3-5 NIV
