Sad news: RIP George Parks

Hi everyone,

It is with sadness that I inform you that George Parks died last night, after a long illness. George and his wife Sandy are faithful attendees of the 8 am Sunday service and George was 94 years old. Sandy, his wife of over 64 years, is extremely grateful for the love, prayers and support from the Good Shepherd family throughout this difficult time. Please continue to keep Sandy and the Parks’ loved ones in your prayers.

The funeral will be held in the coming days at the funeral home in Mahopac, and the burial will be at the family plot in Poughkeepsie. We will share the details with the community shortly, once the arrangements have been finalized.

Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant George. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.
