Strausser family I am sorry to just hear of Ricky passing. Please accept my condolences. Psalms 36:9 says that with God is the source of life. Please take comfort in knowing that although Ricky is no longer alive the very one who cares the most of him has the ability to bring him back to life.

My condolences to the lost of your love one. Death is something that was not meant for humankind, because God, he created humans with a yearning to live forever (Ecclesiastes 3:11). However our loving God gives us a wonderful hope that 'death will be brought to nothing' and that we will see our love ones again (1 Corinthians 15:26; Mark 5:39-42).

You will be missed bro!

Dear Strausser Family, I am saddened to hear of your loss. I work at MLGW and I am sure I had your son in one of my classes. I am also sure he was a fine young man. I can sympathize with your loss and understand very cleary what you feel as we lost our 20 year old son in Feb 2011. It is difficult and our hearts ache for you, but know that he is in Heaven and has reached paradise; something that some of us wait an entire lifetime to enjoy. He is there now. Try not to dwell on your loss, as I have done, but think of his glory.

You will be in our prayers.

Sincerely,
The Johnson Family

Just as I could never get used to seeing my hubby's obituary, I can't get used to reading your obituary & seeing your Legacy page. I thought you'd always be around to entertain & make us all laugh. Never a dull moment. You were someone that I considered invincible & my mind can't process this. I stare at your pics in disbelief that you are no longer here. I'm praying that God's loving, merciful arms be wrapped tightly around your family for the days, months, & years to come.
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

To the family... May god bless you all during this difficult time and give you the peace you need.. Ricky was raised well with a loving family. He was kind to everyone he came across. And you could count on him to bring a smile to anyone's face. We are all very lucky to have had Ricky touch out lives.
You will be very missed.

As I sit here with tears in my eyes and wondering why? I ask God for strength for this family, and most of all for your parents and Blake. May we grow in love for one another and speak kind words, which is the way you always showed us. Uncle Mike will always remember your fishing trips together. He was telling me some stories about some of your trips together. The love you showed us and memories will hopefully help us to find some peace. Much Love, Uncle Mike and Aunt Judee

In Your Time Of Sorrow
Your loved one has passed through the gate, to be with Jesus in Heaven above.
Now into a realm surrounded by flowers, where all is Joy, Peace and Love.
In this garden where flowers never fade, The beauty out-shines the brightest star.
Weep when you must, but do remember, God is with you wherever you are.
God loves you and has felt your deep pain, when He softly called Ricky away.
God will never leave your nor forsake you, Lean on Him and don't forget to pray.
When God reached down His loving hand, He knew it would not be easy for you to say good-bye.
God will gently dry each fallen tear, and oneday you will understand "why"
My prayer is that God will comfort you during this time. Keep trusting God for a new and brighter tomorrow.

Johnny, Debbie, CiAnna & Grant Williams
