With Thanks and Appreciation

It is with heartfelt thanks to the many friends and loved ones who so kindly expressed their sorrow to my family and I at the loss of our Dearest  Hilkka. Your kindness and sympathy has brought comfort to us for which we will be forever thankful. Hilkka was much loved. Knowing she is present with the Lord is her victory. God bless You all.


John William Tengstrom


“Keep the Faith”


Stay the course of faithfulness

through trouble and grief arise,


Trust completely in the Lord

let doubt not cloud the mind,


Why God wills as he does

is not for us to know,


Just keep the faith and patiently wait

someday all will be known.
