The pain endured cannot be relieved, the loss can never be replaced, the memories can never be cast away; but with some amount of compassion, thoughtfulness, gentle words, one can surely help ease the pain. These condolence messages will help remind you, that although death separates us from one another in body, in spirit, the person always remains alive. Alive through the kind words they said to us, the caring deeds they did for us, the lesson that they taught us, and the example that they were to us. Let us remember them in our prayers, in our fond memories, in our everyday actions, so that remembrance brings joy, not tears.

Dear Burt & Kathy,
How shocked and saddened to learn of B. J.'s death, yet I rejoice with you knowing that he has gone to a better place where His King Jesus has welcomed him with open arms. Together they await those of us who have accepted Jesus as Lord and savior and some glorious day we will all be together. Blessing to you as we wait for that day!

Love, Bob & Pat Windel, 2880 Country Club Dr., Windom, MN 56101

I'm so sorry to hear about this. BJ was a good friend. When he and I first met sometime around 1999 at a tiny church in Minnesota I was going through some difficult times. BJ's friendship was one I could count on to help me through it. I was saddened when he told me he was moving back to Montana but could tell it was for the best. And now, with this news, I know that I have lost a friend on this Earth but look forward to seeing him again.

I know it has been a few years since BJ’s passing, but I just learned of this news today. I’ve thought of BJ many times over the years, though we lost touch about 16 years ago. I still remember BJ’s kindness, gentleness, smile and laughs we shared with our mutual friend Jeremy. I am glad I was able to know him, and sad he left this earth so soon. I’m so sorry for the loss you’ve experienced and pray that God’s peace continues to be with you.
