  1. God’s with you in this time of loss
    With love to comfort you
    And as He holds you in His arms,
    His peace will gently soothe.
    His healing presence will carry you,
    When, at times, it gets too tough
    And as He wipes away each tear,
    Rest in His abiding love.

    Our deepest sympathy is with you
    In your time of grief —
    We pray you’ll sense God’s presence
    And find in Him, peace…

  3. Pastor Larry Wolff, a wonderful, faithful friend. I miss our time together, zooming in the Porsche along Moore County’s back roads, following explicit instructions as Larry could not then drive. I miss his quiet encouragement as my wife faced ever declining health. I miss the dinners and lunches we shared at each others homes or at a mutual rendezvous. I miss making those lunches with him for Matthew 25 ministry at Our Saviour Lutheran Church. I miss the wry smile as he would counter my comment, casually but succinctly showing me the errors of my ways. I miss you, Larry, but love that you are with our Lord and are receiving His blessings.
