Scott Rathke's funeral

Scott Rathke was a very caring, loving and funny man. Family was everything to him and he would give anything to have his whole family in one place. He is survived by his three daughters Rachel, Danielle and Kristen. He also has three grandchildren who meant the world to him, Jesse, Davien and Kayli.  He leaves behind grieving parents, Mike and Carol, siblings Steve, Dave, Debra and Faith and many nieces, nephews, family and friends that are heartbroken to have lost this warm, caring man so suddenly.  We are truly shocked at how suddenly this happened and are currently waiting for results for the cause of death. As we plan the end of his journey and try to hold dear the memories we have of this smiling man, we are suffering from lack of funds. He was currently living with his sister Faith and brother in law Lee, and left behind no means for a burial. Any amount you are able to donate to help us during this time, and provide a proper burial for our wonderful lost angel would be appreciated. Thank you

The Road to Eternity 

Life is not a stopping place, 
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road
To sweet eternity. 
We all have different journeys, 
Different paths along the way, 
We all were meant to learn some things, 
But never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place
For greater than we know. 
For some, the journey's quicker, 
For some the journey's slow. 
And when the journey finally ends, 
We'll claim a great reward, 
And find everlasting peace, 
Together with the Lord. 

Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
