In Memoriam

Dear Deeper Window, friends
Today you can give new focus and fresh praise to our Lord for peacefully taking Jose’ home Friday, 9/16/22 at 0859 hrs. Sitting at his bedside holding his hand and speaking the name of Jesus over him as he drew his last breath was the highest privilege of our 29 year covenant. Our two oldest children were present as their dad’s flag draped gurney was led through an honor walk at the Leavenworth VA Community Living Center. Our youngest child was in transit at the time. We are all together, planning, laughing, and grieving while being deeply loved and supported by our community. The celebration of this dear man’s beautiful life will be on Tuesday, September 27, 2022. Details below.

We are grateful for your faithful prayers and love holding us steady throughout this journey. 💜

Be well,
Elaine Belardo
