Henry de Jong (son)
Lord, together we sing mightily of your power and our fearlessness in the face of darkness and death. But you know that the times will come when we are alone and when we waver. Our celebration of your work in the life of Herman de Jong and of the eternal life that is now his, does not mask our pain. The loss of a husband, a father, an opa, a brother, a friend will continue to be an ache in our lives. We ask for a special measure of your grace at those times too, and we ask now that your spirit rest on this place, in this memorial service, so that the words and the music will be balm for our souls.
