Juanita MacKnight funeral was sad...by Dennis Melanson...
Attended the funeral of Juanita McKnight yesterday morning in Moncton.
The first thing that blew me away was the number of people in attendance at
It was held in the chapel of a funeral home.
Capacity was about 250. It as full...in fact there was about another couple of hundred in the foyer and reception area.
The Family was truly astounded at how many people came to pay their last repects to Juanita.
Her brother gave the eulogy...truly from the heart.
He held his composure throughout..did
much better than I would have been able to do.
The Funeral home had prepared a slide presentation with music that ran before the service.
Very well done....there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
Another beautiful touch during the service was the inclusion of music which Juanita had recorded with her doing vocals and playing piano.
She was truly a multi talented person.
It was truly a fitting good-bye for our co-worker and dear friend, Juanita.
FOR WHAT PROFIT IS IT TO A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE
WORLD, AND IS HIMSELF DESTROYED OR LOST?
( LUKE 9:25 *NKJV )
As you already know in this World today it is very easy to
get caught up in our day to day life. We sometimes even
seem to forget how short our human life is compared to our
Eternal life! After all it is written; WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?
IT IS EVEN A VAPOR THAT APPEARS FOR A LITTLE TIME
AND THEN VANISHES AWAY. ( JAMES 4:14 )
We even see around us many people that are so consumed
by the power of money that they have lost sight of what is
really important! FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT OF
ALL KINDS OF EVIL, FOR WHICH SOME HAVE STRAYED
FROM THE FAITH IN THEIR GREEDINESS, AND PIERCED
THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS!
( 1 TIMOTHY 6:10 ) For their god has become the almighty
dollar, but when their life is over, all of their money can not
another moment buy!
As Children of God we have an even better life ahead of us!
One with Our Savior Jesus Christ, and a life where; GOD WILL
WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM YOUR EYES; THERE
SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NOR SORROW, NOR CRYING.
THERE SHALL BE NO MORE PAIN, FOR THE FORMER
THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY. ( REVELATION 21:4 )
Therefore what a Blessing it is to be a Child of God! So the
next time that you count all of your blessings, be sure to add
that one as well!
Have a wonderful day Charles, and please do not forget to
attend your Church next Sunday, and Worship your Heavenly
Father, also thank Him as well. Amen.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
