Tony Relph – Requiescat in pace

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  (Romans 6:3-4)

Early this morning, the Sixth Day of Easter, our brother in the Lord, our dear friend, Tony Relph died. We give thanks to God for his life even as we entrust him now to God’s eternal mercy, confident in the hope which is ours, and was most definitely his, in the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

We pray for his beloved Carol, for their grown children, Nick, Mark, and Debbie, for their families, and for all who loved him.

Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord.
And let light perpetual shine upon him.
