The memorial service for our dear sister and member, Jean Besley, was held at a fully packed Christchurch in Ross-on-Wye on Saturday afternoon. Tributes were given by family members and by Wes Boxall, and the service was led by Pastors John & Sue Gasston of New Life Church, Ross. Friends gathered from all over the area to honour Jean, and to stand with the family who are mourning the sudden loss of wife and mother.
During the service the congregation sang many of Jean’s favourite songs and hymns as a tribute to her. Above all else she was a passionate worshipper.
Pastor Sue Gasston gave a short message on the ‘parable of the talents’ and being faithful in all that God has given to us as individuals, as Jean herself had done.
Refreshments were served after the service in the church hall.
We continue to pray for the family at their time of loss.
