    I was saddened to hear about your baby Eva-but we should have peace knowing she is home with Jesus. Your family will be in my prayers-God be with you at this time.

    Pastor, Carrie and boys

    May the comfort of God’s love and reassurance that baby Eva rests safely in Jesus’ arms help you and your family through this difficult time. Til we all meet again in heaven, may God comfort you with His undying love and assurance of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.

    We cannot express to you how deeply saddened we are for your loss. I cannot imagine losing a baby or child at any age. Pastor Knickelbein said you were blessed to have her 39 days. His strength and faith is unwavering and an encouragement to us. May God provide you with the strength needed and the knowledge of the hope we have in Jesus.

  6. So sorry to hear of little Eva, it must be very difficult for the family, but she is now with her Lord.

    Debbie (wife) and I are saddened by the loss of your daughter Eva. We pray that Jesus will give you the strength and faith to care for and support each other in this trying time.

    May your faith be strong as a mountain wall
    and subtle as the early morning mist
    May you believe that God’s power conquers all
    and his love through trial and pain persists

    May your faith soar like a bird
    and shine brighter than the sun
    Because you know your prayers are heard
    and Jesus waits when the final day is done

    and may God bless you,
    The Father who rules the starry sky
    The Son who rose from the dead
    And the Spirit who comes in hope

    We are very sorry for your loss; however, we admired the way in which you made so much of your precious time at home with Eva. Hopefully, too, the boys developed special memories of her during the brief time they were able to spend with their sister. Such a difficult encounter enables one to see how much death is a part of life. May you all be enriched and strengthened by having experienced one of life’s many “curve balls.”

    With our love and sympathy to the whole family,

    George and Jackie

    To the family of Eva Doerr:

    Our sympathies to you and your family. Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter how long our short of time we have loved them, but the assurance we have through Jesus Christ can help to ease our sorrow. God’s blessings of comfort through the promises of His Word be with all of you.

    Pastor Ray, Bernice, and Carl Ziebell

    I want to express my deepest sympathy at the loss of your daughter. Nine years ago, our son, Brody, passed away at the age of 1 week. Whenever I see that a child has passed away, I always say a prayer for the family. My heart goes out to you and just know that “If God brought you to it, he will get you through it.” May God bless you and keep you.
