December 17, 2010 Change of Plans Update

December 17, 2010 - 8:01 pm - Posted by Brenda Matthews

I have been overwhelmed by the number of you who have written to express your condolences and assure me of your prayers for my family at this time.  A huge THANK YOU to each one of you.  I’ll be sharing the messages in the next few days.  It has been complicated to make arrangements to leave Piura, but I’m grateful to the Lord that people volunteered in many ways to take responsibilities so I could make the trip home.  All the flights and connections were perfectly smooth and I arrived this afternoon, in time for the service tomorrow.  Here’s the announcement:

Matthews, Herbert “David” – Peacefully at Park Lane Terrace Nursing Home, to be with his Lord on Monday, December 13th, 2010 in his 85th year. Beloved husband and companion of 51 years to Verna. Loving father of Brenda Matthews, Pat and her husband John Busk, Don Matthews and his wife Julie. Caring grandfather of Christina and her husband John Cunningham, Rob Busk, Jenna Matthews and Jacob Matthews. Also survived by his brother Ted and his wife Joyce. David loved to travel with his family, enjoyed photography, volunteering his time to help others and was a long time contributing member of St. George Baptist Church. A Memorial Service will be held at the BECKETT-GLAVES FAMILY FUNERAL CENTRE, 88 Brant Avenue on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. Cremation has taken place. Donations to the Alzheimer Society or the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated. Condolences, donations, and photos will be available online at www.beckettglaves.com.      A tree will be planted in memory of David in the Beckett-Glaves Memorial forest.

I don’t think I’ll be able to write each one of you to thank you for your support, especially at this time, but please do know that I have read and appreciate each message.

May God richly bless you,

Brenda
