Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Family of Edward Borek, I am sorry about the lost of your loved one. Words cannot describe feelings in a time like this. Many have found comfort in the Bible’s promises of seeing our past loved again. Please take care of yourselves.

  2. I am sorry about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask. Walt

  3. I wanted to convey my sympathy to the family of Mr. Borek. Though I did not know him or the family, I do know what it is like to lose someone. I wanted to share a thought from the Bible that I look to in times such as this. Our Heavenly Father is a God of Love, and he hates to see us in pain. This thought is supported at Rev. 21:3,4 where it is promised that all those in the memorial tombs will come out. What a time of celebration that will be, when we will be crying tears of joy instead of sorrow. I, again, am very sorry for your loss.

  4. Our thoughts and Prayers are with you,If you need anything let us Know. Sincerely, Matt&Jaimelynn

  5. Sorry about your Father but as you know,I know it only to well. To help you out Mariann your uncles names are George Jr(.porky.) and Alfred not (Ale) Borek. I know at this time we don’t think as the sorrow is great. Sorry again as we still haven’t gotten over our Mom and Dad’s loss but in time it gets better. Now our family is almost gone only cousins left on your Dad’s side. We will always be here. Joan sends her regards also. Val
