Richard LeMaitre

Our Dear Friend and Elder of the Chapel was called home to be with his Lord 
on Saturday 9th March 2013 - we shall miss him very much

Dick was buried at Hinton Park Woodland Burial Ground
at 12.30 pm on Tuesday 26th March 2013
A Thanksgiving Service followed
at 2.30 pm in our Chapel.

Our Pastor Jeremy Andrews presided over both services and there were contributions as follows:
Malcolm Smith and Ken Orman led in prayer.
Glynne Hampson spoke in appreciation of Dick's earlier years at New Milton Evangelical Free Church,
followed by Peter Hallsworth who spoke of the last ten years,
during which we at Verwood Road have had the priviledge of his friendship and fellowship.
Oliver Gross brought us a message from God's Word, with a reading of Job chapter 14.  
Oliver answered the question in Job 14 v 14 - If a man dies, shall he live again? with a definite Yes
and then went on to explain how we can know that Dick is alive in heaven now.

At the beginning of this year Dick chose the following scripture for remembrance by all in the chapel:

A new commandment I give you: Love one another as I have loved you  (John 13v34)
