Her greatest honor took place in Glory. She is singing with the Saints and Angels. People came from as far away as Ohio, Illinois, Georgia, South Carolina, etc. to her funeral.  I would like to share one more short scripture verse from I Samuel 20:18, "and thou shalt be missed, because thy seat will be empty."

MOM cannot come back to us, nor would we call her back if we could. David said of the baby he lost, "He can't come to me but I can go to him."

So MOM is receiving the welcome of eternity.  Did you know that there are folks on the other side who have been waiting for this moment? Their happiness now is as great as our sorrow!  MOM occupied the seat of a Christian.

Her testimony was great. She was loving, faithful, considerate, understanding, caring, attentive, and compassionate. She was always glad to pray for needs. MOM occupied the seat of a MOTHER. Proverbs 31:10-31. This seat is now empty.

Children who have such a parent as we had, need to thank God daily.

Time out for a Christmas office party, having some fun.

Mom liked to shop at Kmart in 2010 with Tony.
This love will remain for the rest of your life. No one can take away the memories. They are precious to us for the rest of our lives.

Her prayers will continue to follow us everywhere we will go. MOM occupied the seat of a Faithful WIFE.

A wife that my DAD always honored and respected. MOM occupied the seat of a Faithful Friend. She kept the faith with her friends.

All the flowers, cards and emails from every continent of the world and people, speak to that fact. She was always happy and glad to see you and minister faith to you.

She did not want flowers but rather that people would give to missions. At this writing we have received over $2,000 to purchase buildings for churches in her memory. 

She bought one of the first, 18 years ago for $300 in Ukraine.  It was one of the first of 177 buildings purchased for churches in the former USSR.

If MOM would come back to earth for a few moments, I would ask her a few questions.  Perhaps these are the answers I think she would give.

Tony:  Mama...
1. Tell me of Heaven?  

2. Tell me, what was the greatest site you saw?  

3. What words would you tell us?  

4. What would you tell your friends, enemies, if you had them and strangers?  

5. What would tell the ministers to do?  

6. MOM, I am your SON, I preached your funeral service, and what do you want me to do?  Mother I know your heart but you have worked with my brother and I and our wives in a worldwide ministry for 50 years. What one thing would you like me to do?   

7. Would there be one more message from you if you were here? 

1. I cannot. It is too wonderful!

2. Jesus!

3. Serve Jesus!

4. Jesus is wonderful! Please do not miss heaven, I cannot describe itís GLORY!

5. Evangelize and teach their people to evangelize.

6.Son, invite people to receive Christ! Keep winning souls.


7. Yes, do not miss heaven. I will be waiting for you. Mother, we wonít miss it. Heaven is so real! Jesus said that He was going to prepare a place for us.

Tony and Frank bidding Mom a final goodbye.

Tony preached Momís funeral service.

Momís body at rest, at home with Jesus!

Frank Abram committing Mom to the grave till the Resurrection when her body will rise to meet her spirit.

The most important thing that you and I can do is to make sure that we are prepared to go when death calls us. The question is not; when will death come to me?  For none of us knows that, yet we know it will come. So the question must be, am I ready to meet Jesus when death does come?

Motherís death was a graduation. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known (I Corinthians 13:12).

And the question we must ask is, do we have that eternal life? (John 11:25 KJV) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:(26) And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

God loves you, He sees your needs, let Him meet your need. Lean on Him, today and everyday.

Trust in God and let Him turn your fears into faith, your sorrows into joy, your doubts into certainty, your loneliness into Divine companionship.

Jesus said, "peace I give you, not as the world giveth, let not your heart be troubled, neither be afraid, trust in God"

Thank you for your prayers. Marge and I will keep on with the message.

God bless you.
Tony and Marge.
