  • It’s a good day to meet Jesus face-to-face; it’s a sad day to release a loved one to their forever home. She impacted many lives and her legacy will continue for generations to come.
    I am sad I can’t come to visitation or funeral; I made a commitment months ago for the same time period. Please know I extend condolences to your family and pray that grace and peace will be multiplied to you as you adjust to her absence.

  • Debbie, Yvonne and family – when Mom said she was “ready to go home”, her work is done here, while hard to accept, I told her she would have a wonderful reunion with all her loved ones. We will always remember the many memories we have of how she and Les welcomed Al and I into their home and we were honored met all of you over time. Their love for ministry work was what brought us together. She loved you all and shared in her knowing way that everything is going to be fine. Our thoughts and prayers are with you with our Aloha, Al and Dayna

  • What a pleasure having met Lester & Rebecca on this journey of life. Reminds me of the scripture in Romans 5 : 5″ And hope maketh not ashamed; because the Love of God is Shed abroad in Our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us ” .Am sorry that not able to make the Graduation Service .

  • We have been so very blessed over the many years to have been nurtured and encouraged in so many ways through Aunt Rebecca’s life. We grieve her loss but celebrate her grand entrance into the eternal presence of Jesus. “See you on the other side” were the last words she spoke to me through a recent text. Yes! Till we meet…so long for now.
