Condolence From: TBC
Condolence: So sorry for the loss of Mrs. Rieken. Imagine a time when she’s able to enjoy her favorite activities, the company of good friends and family, while living with perfect health and peaceful conditions forever. This is a beautiful hope held out for the future, since “the meek will possess the earth… and they will live forever on it.” (Psalm 37:11,29; Matthew 5:5)

Condolence: I was deeply saddened to learn of Marilyn's passing. She and Don played an important role in my childhood. I will always be grateful for the opportunity to know both of them. You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time of memories and mourning.

Condolence: Don and Marilyn were such wonderful people! We've had many great memories; from fishing on their pond and running through their yard as a child, to many long talks with Don at the Old Mercantile. Marilyn came in just to get me, so I could keep Don "busy for her" while she "shopped." She never came out with anything! I still don't know if it was because Don missed me that much or Marilyn wanted a break from Don. They loved each other so much. They both hold such a special place in my heart, and I'm happy to have known them! I pray for you all, and I know you shouldn't worry. God accepted her with WIDE OPEN ARMS!

Sincerely, Jessica (Collins) McKay, Bridgeport, NE

P.S. I'm sorry we can't be there. We will be out of town. We will be there in spirit, for sure.
