My condolences to the Kilheffer family.

Please find comfort in this.

Ed & family, I’m thinking of you at this difficult time. Losing your father is tough. Losing your father that lived in the same house is really tough. When my Dad died,I found a few verses that descibed him (phil.2:3,4).Those verses are more comforting to me than any headstone will ever be.

Condolence from Kris Conner Petrosky on January 2nd, 2013 11:00 am

Mary & sons, I speak for my whole family when I send our condolences at this terrible time. My brothers & I agree that the best part of our childhood was spent on your farm, learning the joys of work and play. No TV needed to have fun. You introduced me to Nancy Drew mysteries, the Hawaiian guitar, making homemade ice cream, shelling lima beans and tasting your wonderful homemade root beer!
May the Lord wrap you in his wings of comfort at this time. I’m the only one of us still living in Lancaster.
Kris, Michael and Kevin Conner
