This morning we celebrated Delmar Garrett’s “homegoing” and it was a celebration to remember. God used Delmar to touch the lives of many people, both in Britton Christian Church, and all across our community. As we celebrated Delmar’s life with tears streaming down our faces I was reminded of the difference Jesus makes in life, and also in death. We grieve, but not as the world grieves!? We believe that Delmar has already heard those words that all of us long to hear–“Well done My good and faithful servant! Now enter into your rest.”
I want to thank all of you who helped in any way with Delmar’s service today. I received so many compliments about our church and the wonderful folks who helped to prepare and serve the meal to more than 100 of Delmar’s family members. You are such a wonderful group of people and I praise God for each of you.
