I See Jesus Everywhere!
A Tribute to our mother Valeria Kreh (3 July 1922 - 6 Feb. 2010)
We your children, your grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives, and friends love You Buscha (Grandma) with all our heart.
You made our lives better.
You made our lives fuller.
We all learned so much from your example.
You never gave up on life and never gave up on us.
You always encouraged us to be better.
God has taken you home.
God surely has said to you, "Well done my good and faithful servant."
"Come enter into my rest." (read Isaiah 57:2)
Thank you for all the life lessons you have given us. we will use them and teach them to our children, and our childrens children will remember you.
You Raise Me Up...Thank you Lord Jesus!
Our mother went home to be with the Lord February 6, 2010. She lived a long and wonderful life. She was a beautiful woman...both inside and out. She is now with God where all her tears have been wiped away by her heavenly Father. May this song remind us all that Jesus Christ our Adonai ( Lord God) will raise up all who "TRUST" in Him.
Nothing Can Seperate Us From the Love of Christ
Our Only Savior
1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you,
I will give men in exchange for you,
and people in exchange for your life.
5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.
31What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We love you, Mom

Mom Kreh, Ryan and I are going to miss you so much. You welcomed us into your family with open arms and and a loving heart. Your leaving has left us with a tremendous void in our lives. We look forward to the day when we shall see you again. Thank you for giving to me the best gift ever, and that is your son Bill.

To my mother who I love so deeply. Mother, I want you to know you gave me such happiness and joy. Thanks mom for all the wise counsel and concern you always had for me and in the ways you showed your love for me. I will always remember your smile...the way it looked like a rainbow to me. You were teaching me valuable lessons until the very moment you went home to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus. My faith has been mightily strengthened because of you. You are the example of what a mother should be. I rejoice you are home in heaven and that we will all be together again. Maranatha (Aramaic phrase meaning, "Come quickly Lord Jesus.") I love you so very much. Your son, James

Mom, You were always there for me. In my youth, when I skinned my knee, when I got that bee sting, when I had deep wounds you were there to be my comforter. You always made me feel better when I was hurting inside. I always felt protected by your love. You gave me a safe environment for me to grow up in. I felt the love you poured out on me. You brought me up to know God. You did as God commanded in to bring up your children to know the Lord. I am forever eternally grateful. God has given you great rewards in heaven for doing the most important task of a mother with such great love. Enjoy all the rewards you earned because you truly sacrificed a lot for your children. I love you MOM! I will see you some day again. You are the best! Your son, Ken

Good-bye for now Buscha. You will be so greatly missed here but we're so thankful to know you are in Heaven with Pa Kreh and Greg. I bet you're doing the polka right now! Thank-you for being such an awesome mother-in-law and always so supportive. I love you and will see you again in Heaven. Helen

Dear Grandma, It doesn't seem quite real that you are gone. It seems odd that I can't just pick up the phone for quick hello. But I know that you are in a much better place. The aches and pains are gone. No more doctors appointments, patches, or pills. No more walkers, canes, or grippy socks :) You are are truly Home now. I just want you to know that I will miss you so much and how much I appreciated having you for a Grandma. Coming to your house was always so much fun, whether it be for our annual Christmas cookie baking, my attempts at sowing, family get togethers, or even just to help clean your cupboards. I love you Grandma and will think of you every time I make cookies. Luv, ~Katie~

Hi Buscha, I love you so much. It was a blessing to have you as my grandmother. I have many wonderful memories with you and I will always cherish them. I am going to miss you here on earth, but I am so very happy that I will see you again in Heaven. I love you! Courtney
Jesus Declares: "I am the bread of life"
32Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world."
34"Sir," they said, "from now on give us this bread."
35Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. 36But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. 37All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. 38For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. 40For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
You are my Sunshine
Mom's Lessons for Life: The Things She Knew
In Loving memory from her son Gary
I was kind of restless Saturday night. I kept wondering what would mom say if she could be here today. I put my thought onto paper Sunday morning.
She knew last Saturday would be the best day of her life. The day, Jesus took her home to heaven. In fact, I think she may have had an 11:00 a.m. date at the first tee with Dad, Greg, and Uncle Ronnie. She loved a beautiful golf course when she was younger.
She knew funerals were for the living. I know she would want us to reminisce, share a hug, a laugh or a tear together today.
She knew raising five boys would be a challenge with lots of opportunity to help us with our lessons. She did the best she could in the good and the bad times.
Last, I want to share something I knew. Mom had a special gift. If meeting someone for the first time or a life long friend, she didn't see our warts and weaknesses. She could always see something to love or like...the strengths God has given us.
I believe she would like to share this gift of hers with us today and everyday...it is worth working at.
We love you mom.
A Mother's Final thoughts
You are so lovely.
The boys are coming to see me today.
I want to see the New Year with my boys.
I love you Bill (Uncle Joe).
I forgive those who hurt me of all your sins.
Good bye for now.
P.S. Love and kisses.
