Dear Barb & family,
We love you all and are praying for the peace of Christ to hold you all during this very sad time. I (Cindy) have fond memories of Skip, growing up through the years as his younger paternal cousin. He always had a ready-smile quick wit, and was kind of a tough guy but with a big heart who loved and cared very much for us all. I admired him very much and always thought him to be a great man, wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. I told him many times what a wonderful legacy he has in all of you. We miss his presence in our lives now, but we who love the Lord mourn with the hope, faith, and assurance from Jesus that we will see Skip again in paradise.
In deepest sympathy,
Bob and Cindy

Our thoughts are with you all as you grieve the loss of you husband and dad. Our hope is that all your memories will bring a smile to you as you share them as a family. We will always remember Stan as a supporter of his kids in HS. We see his talents every day in a pen and ink drawing of a hummingbird and hollyhock in our living room.
Our faith tells us you will all see him again.

My condolences to the Zepp families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Stan. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
