I was called upon to establish from zero information; all arrangements for my Nephew Ernest Holmes.
God gave me the strength and people of resources to help me along the way.
Namely the El Paso County, Colorado Springs,Colorado coroners offices;the Colorado Springs Police Department and most of all Mrs. Taylor Mealer of Dove Witt Funeral Homes and the Director of The National Cemetery at Pike's Pike, Colorado Springs,Colorado-local VFW and volunteer Honor Guard who provided the blowing of taps,presentation of US Family flag and a 5 rifle/3 shot salute to Ernest,
I was the most fortunate to have the most loving spouse to understand,comfort,accompany me and pray with me all the way thru.
Monday morning May 20th,2019-*8:10am, the Limo was there in fron to pick Mrs. Certain & I up and drove us to the National Cemetery, in 45% raining weather.
We arrived early, waiting for the US Govt. car to arrive for further instructions.
We assembled underneath the concrete covered awning with benches and began.
The rifle salute first, taps sounded next,presenting of family flag and my God priveledged 10 minutes to begin the service, Pray The Lord's prayer, read the next scripture readings-John 3:16-17- For God so loved the world,that He gave His only begotten Son,that whoever believeth in Him,should not perish,but have everlasting life.For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world,but through Him,the world might be saved.
Create in Me-Create in me a clean heart,O God, and renew a right spirit within me.Cast me not away from Thy presence,and take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation, and uphold me with Thy free spirit.Amen.
In the name of The Father and of The Son(+) and of The Holy Spirit.Amen.-Christ has died,Christ has risen(+),Christ will come again.Amen.
Ernest Holmes was a Baptized Christian,an Honorably discharged Army Veteran and most of all very loved by his family, I was very proud to be called his Uncle, as well as his Pastor
