NECROLOGICAL SERVICE

INCAT BATCH 88

PART ONE

WELCOMING

Today, my friends, while we are saddened by the untimely demise of a good man – a friend and a brother in one, we are all gathered
here to celebrate his life. During his birthdays, we join him in thanksgiving for all the blessings he received. Today, as we are soon sending
him HOME to the FATHER, may we gather our thoughts – our love and prayers, to celebrate with him as he had accomplished successfully his
mission in life on earth?
This is not easy though, because the sadness and the thought that he will be gone forever are physically hunting. It is a clear
indication that he will no longer be with us but let his memories linger to remind us we, too, will any time join him in Heaven.
My friends, to celebrate the journey of our dear brother to the Kingdom of God, let us rejoice and sing glory to God and to the
mission accomplished by him.
OPENING SONG – LIFT UP YOUR HANDS TO GOD
Life is not all that bad, my friend, hmmm
If you believe in yourself, if you believe there's Someone
Who walks through life without you
You'll never be alone just learn to reach out, and open your heart
Lift up hands to God, and He'll show you the way.
And He said, "Cast your burdens upon Me those who are heavily laden,
Come to Me, all of you who are tired of carrying heavy loads,
For the yoke I will give you is easy and My burden is light,
Come to Me and I will give you rest."
When you feel the world is tumbling' down on you,
And you have no one that you can hold on to,
Just face the rising sun and you'll see hope, and there's no need to run
Lift up your hands to God, and He'll make you feel all right.
And He said, "Cast your burdens upon Me, those who are heavily laden,
Come to Me, all of you who are tired of carrying heavy loads,
For the yoke I will give you is easy and My burden is light,
Come to Me and I will give you rest."

WELCOME TALK
LEADER:

Nelson will be gone forever in our midst. As an individual, he was just that full of compassion and love, hopes
and dreams – that soonest and before he left, his mission accomplished. We must count ourselves extremely
lucky if at some time during our lives we happen to befriend a wonderful man like him, whose zest for life and
capacity to live life to the full was inspiring. He gave of his time so willingly to colleagues and friends and
never expected anything in return.
These truly are significant to remember and let us be happy despite his untimely demise, for he is now
heading to God’s place after he has done the best he could leave us to remember.
SONG TO CELEBRATE – AMAZING GRACE
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed. (Repeat)
