A close and wonderful friend
Is going home very soon.
Home, is Heaven to be with
The Good Lord, Jesus, Himself
God bless and keep her safe.

Back then, I never had a chance
To phone her, to say that I loved her.
Now, I believe that it is too late,
But, I know and so does she,
That we will meet again, someday.)


She wrote this to me on March 1, 2009:

CATHY BURNETT

Quite a number of years ago
She had Breast Cancer.
That was ground zero
Then lung and liver tumours,
After they found a brain tumour

Now, she is in Hospital
Dying of Liver Cancer
It is only a matter of time,
Her family asks please pray for her.
God bless and keep her safe.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Earlier this afternoon our dear sister in Christ, Cathy Burnett, was transferred into Glory and is now a part of the Church Triumphant in Heaven. She now has the crown of everlasting life and for that we give thanks and praise to our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Please remember her husband Wayne, and her children and grandchildren in your prayers as they mourn her loss. Please also offer up a prayer of thanksgiving for our Lord providing us such a wonderful and loving sister who we know we will see again in heaven.

At this time we do not have a schedule for a wake and the memorial service but that will be coming shortly. We also will be planning a funeral meal for the Burnett family. If you would like to help out with this please contact Gail Lovell. We will let you know of any arrangements as soon as they become available.

“The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the Name of the Lord”

Serving you in our Risen Lord,

Pastor Schaaf
