Jerry Finley Obituary, Death – I am sorry to inform you that Jerry Finley died away this afternoon. It is with a sad heart that I share this news with you. He passed away calmly with his loved ones surrounding him. He attended church on Sunday, participated in the choir, and even practiced for this week, as many of you are aware. In addition, he rehearsed for this week. It is a wonderful thing that he was able to visit us at this time. Keep an eye out for the next service information. In your prayers, please remember to include Tinka and his family. We entrust your faithful servant Jerry to you, O Merciful Savior; accept him as our offering.
We earnestly urge you to acknowledge a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, and a sinner of your own saving. Please accept him into the arms of your compassion, into the blessed rest of eternal peace, and into the magnificent company of the saints who are in the light. Amen. O God, whom the holy ones and the angels in heaven take great joy in worshiping: Be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; and grant to them even now glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Be ever present with your servants who seek to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth through art and music. Amen.
