Celebrating the life of Edythe Tesler Baer
Thank you for signing Edythe Tesler Baer's Guestbook
Hello Baer Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5 :28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures, in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

I know that The loss of Mrs. Baer will form a void in the lives of the family. the wonderful memories of her and shared with her will be of comfort. The hope found at Isaiah 26:19 not only is comforting but reveals the future for those asleep in death. When the family feels up to it please read of that promise from your loving Creator and experience the love he has for mankind even those asleep in death. Sorry for your loss.
