Peace and love to you all.
It's been a difficult many hours since Randy's passing, but we have been so thankful for all the love and compassion that you have shown us, from Facebook messages to texts to comments here on this blog. We have felt the love of God through each and every one of you.
This morning, we met with the funeral home and locked down some details for the funeral and I'd like to share those with you now.
Saturday, March 19
First United Methodist Church

Fargo, ND 58103

Things are still slightly fluid, but those details are what we are going with at this point in time.
We would love any and everyone who wants to and is able to attend to do so, but we understand completely if time, finances, or circumstances mean that you cannot. You are loved and cherished by us regardless.
I'll leave you with a prayer today.
Bless those who mourn, eternal God, with the comfort of your love that they may face each new day with hope and the certainty that nothing can destroy the good that has been given. May their memories become joyful, their days enriched with friendship, and their lives encircled by your love.

After 43 years of ministry, Randy Cross lived his "fourth life" and shared about retirement, living boldly and intentionally in our world. To be sure, there was some North Dakota thrown in.
