In Loving Memory

MICHELLE CANNITO

August 12, 1968 - November 8, 2017

You were the light in my life and the very air I breathe.  Until we are reunited with Christ in glory, I will miss you every day.  I love you forever.

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?  She is more precious than rubies.  Her husband can trust her and she will greatly enrich his life.  She brings him good and not harm all the days of her life.

 ~ Proverbs 31:10-12 (NLT)

In Memorium

BOB ROBERTS

November 2, 1937 - September 1, 2021

Friend, performer and our original COLONEL CUSTARD.  Knowing you these last 20 years has been my great privilege. You inspired us all in so many ways. I will miss you, old friend. Until we see each other again in God's glory.

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.  For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him.  

~ 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
