    I recently got to know Rudolph working with him on an automobile insurance matter. He was always cheerful even though he was dealing with some difficult medical issues. I'm glad for the opportunity of having known him and appreciate his service to our country.

    If Heaven Had A Window If heaven had a window and God granted me a view, of all the beauty it beholds I'd only look for you. I'd listen for your laughter that was always music to me, your beautiful hair and brown eyes are what I'd wish most to see. If I could only view once more the smile that warmed my heart, I'd treasure that moment as long as I live and we must be apart. Here on earth I search for you and pray to God for signs, and every day that passes you're still with me in my mind. I know you're happy in heaven you've earned your mansion indeed, I imagine your kitchen table and you waiting there for me. I love you and I miss you more than words can say, and what I wouldn't give just to talk to you today. I hope that you can hear me and listen to my thoughts, and where ever this life takes me you know I've not forgot. That once upon a time I was blessed and loved its true, and if heaven had a window I'd only look for you.

    I would like to offer my condolences to Stephanie, Thadius and the Vannburan family. 72 years is quite an accomplishment according to the Bible (Psalm 90:10) and I know Rudolph has left you with many precious memories and will be greatly missed. Hopefully this scripture will give you comfort because Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) is promising us he will do away with man's worst enemy, death. This is found for us at Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." For more comforting scriptures please visit: It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matthew 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. John 6: 40 tells us: "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day." Also, Titus 1: 2 tells us this promise of a resurrection: "is based on a hope of the everlasting life that God, who cannot lie, promised long ago. Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live......And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it." This is a wonderful promise made to us by our heavenly father and I pray it brings you comfort and hope. Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Again, I offer my sincere condolences to the family.
