I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Bert’s family. For right now, there’s no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, “... power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28 which says, “... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. The Bible describes our Creator as, “...the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow.

We were sad to read about Martin's passing. We loved visiting with him and Cheryl in their lovely home. They shared fun adventures they'd had together through the years. We hope you will be comforted during this sad time.

Sorry to hear of Martins passing, the last of his parents family. I enjoyed knowing all the Foster boys. I visited the graves of Mom & Dad and Lynn on Memorial day. We enjoyed the association with the Foster Family.

Tate and Angie and family, We are so sorry for the loss of Tate's dad Martin. We were glad we got to meet and get to know him the past few years. His energy to help with hunting camp and elk hunts was extra special and fun. We offer our sympathy and prayers to you both as the sorrow of losing a parent is never easy to accept and overcome.
