Potent Quotable-In Memoriam

Very often people come to me and say: “Mr. Moody, do you think we shall know each other in Heaven?” Very often it is a mother who has lost a dear child, and who wishes to see it again. Sometimes it is a child who has lost a mother, a father; and who wants to recognize them in Heaven. There is a verse in Scripture in answer to this, and that is: “We shall be satisfied” (Psalm 17:15). It is all I want to know. My brother who went up there the other day I shall see, because I shall be satisfied. We will see all those we loved on Earth up there, and if we loved them here, we will love them ten thousand times more when we meet them there.–Dwight L. Moody

“Some day you will read in the papers that D.L. Moody, of East Northfield, is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now. I shall have gone up higher, that is all; out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal, a body that death cannot touch.”— Dwight L. Moody

  1. God be with you till we meet again;
    By His counsels guide, uphold you,
    With His sheep in love enfold you;
    God be with you till we meet again.

    • Till we meet, till we meet,
      Till we meet at Jesus’ feet;
      Till we meet, till we meet,
        God be with you till we meet again.
  2. God be with you till we meet again!
    ‘Neath His wings protecting hide you,
    Daily manna still provide you;
    God be with you till we meet again!
  3. God be with you till we meet again!
    When life’s perils thick confound you,
    Put His arms unfailing round you;
    God be with you till we meet again!
  4. God be with you till we meet again!
    Keep love’s banner floating o’er you,
    Smite death’s threatening wave before you;
    God be with you till we meet again!

Adalene’s daughter Joyce, her husband Doug and their sons Dan, Joe and Jeremy. Her legacy.

The best we can hope for in this life is a knothole peek at the shining realities ahead. Yet a glimpse is enough. It’s enough to convince our hearts that whatever sufferings and sorrows currently assail us aren’t worthy of comparison to that which waits over the horizon. Joni Eareckson Tada

Capri “Shaq” Kel flanked by her other daughter Vickie, and Joyce, along with more Girl Cousins, Robin and Kay.

It was a wonderful day to pay tribute to a woman who has meant so much to so many.

The most mentioned things? Her love of the Lord, her kindness, the fine and loving family who so faithfully cared for her, her good humor and spunk even when times were difficult, her positive attitude, her love of crosswords and a good game of Scrabble.

2 Timothy 4:7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

Until we meet again.
