Dear Iva, Lisa, Ladonna and families,
We love your family! Orlie is a very good man of God. He will be missed by many.
On my last trip out to visit your family, I had the opportunity to sit with Orlie and visit for a few hours. I could feel his love for his family and friends and the Lord. At that time I didn't know he was in as much pain as he was, nor did I know it would be the last time I saw him on earth. He kept his sense of humor to the very end with me. Lisa was my closest, best friend growing up in Burlington, Colorado. Orlie loved to tease me! I wouldn't have had it any other way. I have many memories that bring a smile to my face every day! I know his spirit is alive and well and not that far from his loved ones. Hugs, love and prayers for peace at this time of sadness. Until we meet again at Jesus' feet.
Laura (Laurie) Billington Keele

My heart aches for Ms. Iva and the Crist family to lose in death your precious loved one Mr. Orlie. Words are so limited that can give comfort, so I would like to share with you beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18) invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalm 34:18 Jehovah promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises here on earth (Psalm 37:9-11, 29), including the resurrection.
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection.
Our savior, Jesus, said; John 6: 40; "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day".
Jesus also said; John 5: 28; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..."
John 11:23-25; "Jesus said to her: "I am the resurrection and the life." The one who exercises faith in me, even tho he dies, will come to life."
Acts 24:15 enlightens us: "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of the righteous and the unrighteous."
I pray that Jesus's promise to reunite us with our loved ones on resurrection day will carry you through the difficult days ahead and gradually replace your tears of grief with tears of joy as you reflect on your precious memories of happier times with Mr. Orlie. For more comforting scriptures please visit: It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you.
I pray it will give you comfort to please watch this beautiful video (song 144) entitled "Keep Your Eyes on the Prize"
The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences. Feel free to contact me at my email address:
