This past week, a close friend passed to his rest: Ed Gutierrez. He was well-known and well-loved by countless friends. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and all those going through this time of loss.
This past weekend I preached a sermon that was in many ways a tribute to Ed, entitled The Comforter. It was just uploaded to our Media Center, and I encourage you to listen in.
There will be a viewing at Conley Funeral Home in Elburn, Illinois from 4pm to 8pm, Thursday evening for those who wish to pay their final respects, and a memorial service will be held at 12:00 noon on Friday at the North Aurora SDA church.
Please continue to keep the family in your prayers. The family has established a memorial fund at Conleys to help with a building project for our school for those wishing to remember Ed in that way.
