There’s something about Death Notices. Consider Tasmanian Sir Marcus Loane, an outstanding Christian and leader of the Church. So, what would be included in his Death Notice?
I appreciated the family Death Notice being so thoroughly Christian, as befitted the man’s life. Sydney Morning Herald April 15 2009, page 30:-
“Forever with the Lord”
“Until the day break
and the shadows flee away”
My mother’s Death Notice, reflected her commitment to Christ:
“Oh Triune God of my mother, we follow You.”
“Abiding with Jesus,
Till we meet in his arms.”
When in Singapore I have noted that in the Straits Times the Obituary Notices of Christian people include a Bible verse or statement of Christian faith, e.g.,
“Went home to be with the Lord Jesus.”
These notices honour the deceased person and proclaim Christ – a good way to farewell our brothers and sisters in Christ.
