  1. Tomasek family we are holding you, your family and friends in our thoughts and prayers during your time of loss of Pat. Grief is hard but can sometimes be good when it puts people in touch with God’s goodness. “the Lord is close to the brokenhearted; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves” Psalm 34:19

    Grief strikes “all of us” – not just at the “parts” of us. Grief strikes at our bodies, our minds, our spirits. It hits us from head to toe. It hits us heart and soul. It hits us inside and out. To come out of grief healed, we need to heal the whole, integrated persons that we are. Our prayer for all of you is to experience this kind of holistic, whole-person healing. Blessings to all. Ken & Kim Pitner-Keller
