Shirley Mulder on Nov 5, 2020

The loss of a father is a heavy burden to bear. We gather together on this heartfelt day to say our last goodbye. We may find it hard or unfair, but together we will mourn with sadness and tears and take a few moments to reminisce and share. Let us comfort each other in our time of need and give ourselves time to grieve. Whether we are here in person or virtually as our current world demands, we are united in our prayers.

Our family will be observing the funeral through live streaming. We will be with you in spirit and prayer: Shirley, Michele, Jason, Kjersten, Jared, Jacob, Jordan

To my family, may you treasure the best memories of our father. To Dad, I will miss your smile and your laughter, I will miss sharing a big bowl of popcorn with you, and quiet time walking through the gardens. May the Lord light your way and bring you peace. I will miss you. All my love and prayers, your daughter Shirley
