Condolences for the family of “Henry W. E. Raver”

I know this must be a difficult time for you. I lost my mother 21 years ago and my father almost three years ago. And while we know they are in a much better place where there is much rejoicing, it still does not fill the sense of loss in our own lives.

At my father’s passing, there was a significant sense of the passing on of patriarchal responsibilities. You may feel this additional responsibility s well.

My prayers are with you my brother in Christ. There will be a day when we shall all be reunited and there will indeed be great rejoicing.

May God bless you and be more real to you in your life now than ever before,

Dan & Connie,

Please know that you continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. Take comfort in knowing your father is resting in the arms of our Lord.

To the Raver Family
I grew up with your family on Third Street in Lancaster. I lived about 4 houses down from you. My grandmother was Helen Farrell and my father was Jack Farrell the policeman. Daniel was our paperboy.
I want to express my sincere sympathy in the passing of your husband and father. I remember him as being a kind and gentle person.
I lost my father 3 years ago and it is difficult. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Marion and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Henry’s passing. He was always so kind to us as your neighbor and greatly loved by a little black cocker spaniel names Daisy! Our sincere sympathy to all of you. May God bless you all with peace and many wonderful memories of your husband/father.
John and Chris Ressler and Family
