Dearest Kristie, Jennifer and families,
Rex has been sick for such a long time that I'm glad he is no longer suffering. However, I am saddened at the loss of his presence. I always looked forward to seeing him on Sunday and when we saw him away from home. He will be missed by all who knew him for the strong,faithful, loving father and man he has always been. Your loss is great and I feel your pain at his passing. I hope, in your grief, you can still rejoice for his reuniting with your wonderful mother. They are together and feeling blessed by the knowledge that their children had a strong family and remain in the loving hands of God. I love your family and will pray for you as you continue this worldly travel.

Dear Jennifer and Kristi,

We are so sorry for your loss. Rex was such a good, sweet person and loved and respected by all. My goodness, what a tribute to him yesterday. It was a beautiful service, with the special touches by the love of his life, his grandchildren, and the graveside service was so touching. I am sure he would have been well pleased.

We are truly blessed to be a part of the Eller family. We love you all and you all will remain in our prayers,

Love, Ralph & Sharon
