Update #26 (October 7, 2020)

Thank you for your continued support and encouragement over the last several weeks. In Dan’s words, “The hole in our lives is so big, but hearing stories and memories of Linda helps us press on.” Our God gives us the strength to endure what we never could, left to ourselves.

Bookmarks

For those unable to attend Linda’s visitation or graveside service, there were bookmarks made up in memory of Linda. The Wilton/Kilgus families would like to get a bookmark to anyone who wants one.

If you (or someone you know) would like one, please send the following information to peterandkarly(at)gmail.com.

Music

Over the last year, many wonderful and spiritually uplifting songs have been shared with Dan & Linda’s family, and these have been a source of continual strength. With permission from those who contributed we are thankful to be able to share the songs with you now. Not all of songs were written by Christadelphians, but most were, and all of them have been sung & recorded by brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world.  

Blessings

The Blessings CD was given to them at the end of March.

The cover art was designed by Karen Pillion and anyone who has visited their home can see the beautiful similarities she thoughtfully included.

Wings of Faith

The Wings of Faith CD was put together during Linda’s last weeks to help encourage and inspire Dan & Linda at a time when even walking and breathing was a daily struggle. Each day Linda was given a couple songs, and even right up to her last days in the hospital new songs were coming in from their family in Christ.

The cover art was designed by Karen Pillion who used aerial footage from the Christadelphian Bible Camp to re-create the photo with an eagle soaring over it.

Some have inquired – the featured image fall photo was taken by Linda on the Bible camp road a few years ago. 

“One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.”
Psalm 27:4
