  1. May your family find solace from the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. He promised that in the Paradise life will be a delight, more than we can imagine. (Psalm 37:29; John 5:28, 29) He will even resurrect our loved ones. Until then, trust that in due season, Jehovah God heals the brokenhearted and he binds up their wounds. Wishing you the strength you need in the days ahead

  2. I feel sad that I no longer live in Kansas, and am unable to attend Ethel’s services. I am thankful to have known Ethel! Blessings to each of the family members as you grieve…. now a “double” grief as you so recently buried your mom! I also enjoyed my visits with Elva! May you experience God’s presence and comfort as you grieve.

  3. Rod and family, I am so sorry for your loss! May God comfort you now and the days to come. I will pray for you all!

  4. Rod and family,
    Ethel has always been a great friend and inspiration to me. She will be truly missed by many. I’m so sorry for your loss. I pray you and your family will have peace and comfort. Hugs to you all!

  5. Even though expected, a cold, stab of sadness came when I read the news. Ethel was a gentle, strong, intelligent gal, a friend to so many. Conversations with Ethel were something I looked forward to at appointment time! A life well lived, She made a difference in this world and I will miss her. Sincere sympathy to you all.

  6. Beautiful picture of Ethel. I am blessed to have known her. I am so sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  7. What a beautiful picture of a lovely person. Even though we were strictly doctor’s office buddies, we were friends for almost 30 years. I will miss her always. My sincere sympathy goes out to her family.
