Messages of Condolence

  1. Sarah Jones on April 9th, 2014 8:58 am

    Dear Zeitz Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences at this time. Something that I have found to be a great source of comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5;28,29 where we see that there is going to be a resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death. Also at Revelation 21:4 we see that God is going to eliminate all of the causes for why we deal with sorrow, pain and even death itself. It is my sincere hope that these thoughts bring your family comfort at this time. Once again I am so sorry for your loss.

    Dear Members of the ZEITZ family,

    My sincerest condolences to Denise, Peter, Kathy, and Paul as well as to Sarah, Rachel, Jenny, Corrine, Michael, Amy, and Christopher. I felt privileged to have spent my married years to Denise in the company of your dad Ed. I felt very close to your dad during that period of time, and that will never be taken away. Your father (grandfather) was, above all, gracious and gentle – two human virtues that are hard to come by. He portrayed the essence of being fatherly and paternal to family and did so in a way that was respectful of your differences. Know that his presence will forever be felt by each of you as you hold onto the indelible effect he has had on your life. My sympathies to you all … Jack Simeone

    Dear Denise and family,
    You are truly living the Paschal Mystery at this very sacred time…with the birth of little Sawyer and the “home going” of Sawyer’s great grandfather. May the stories you share and the card games you play bring you comfort and times of laughter. May your faith give you that wonderful peace and assurance of seeing one another again.

  9. Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Moorman on April 10th, 2014 6:09 pm

    Our deepest sympathy. He was admired by everyone.

  12. Cynthia Byrd on April 11th, 2014 8:32 am

    Know that your loved one has joined the band of Heavely Angels and is with the Lord. May you find peace in knowing his soul is “peacefully” at rest. Prayers are ongoing for the family.

  13. Ellen and George Shook on April 11th, 2014 10:58 am

    To the Zeitz Family,

    Ellen and I want to extend our sincere sympathy at the passing of Ed. I worked with him at Energizer Battery Co. for many years and have seen him at retirement activities. We want to send our prayers and thoughts to Jim and Paula Zeitz as we have known them for several years. Please know that we will miss Ed.

  14. Chris and Deborah Zaroor on April 11th, 2014 1:50 pm


    Are prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. The loss of a love one is still hard to understand, even though we know that now they are in Gods hands.

  15. Chris Dewberry on April 11th, 2014 5:53 pm

    Sending prayers and loving thoughts to the family. It is so wonderful that the family could be with him for his passing on into eternal life.

    With love,

    Chris Dewberry

  16. Linda (and James) Keberle on April 14th, 2014 5:21 am

    I am so saddened to hear of the loss of your loving Father/Grandfather. We were unable to come to pay our respects as we were on a cruise during Uncle Ed’s funeral. I do hope your faith will help you deal with this loss and you will celebrate his life and the wonderful person he was.

  17. Jen on April 17th, 2014 7:55 am

    To the Zeitz Family: I wanted to express my condolences to your family on the loss of your loved one. It is at times like these that we need comfort and encouraging words. The bible gives more comfort than I personally can. It speaks of better times ahead where we will no longer experience things like death….” 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,+ and death will be no more,+ neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.+ The former things have passed away.”..Rev. 21:3,4

  18. Carbide Retiree Corp on April 22nd, 2014 10:30 pm

    Dear Zeitz Family: We are sorry to hear of the death of Edward. You are in our thoughts at this time. Sincerely, Friends of Ed from the Carbide Retiree Corp

Please share your thoughts ...
