Harold Jay Priest
Born: August 14, 1942, in Twin Falls, Idaho
Died: May 14, 2003, in Seattle, Washington
Harold was born the third son of Lynn and Ivy Priest. Harold's greatest love, other than the love he held for his children, was his love of gardening. Harold could make anything grow. His gardening skill was second only to his love for animals. The memories of his garden are vibrant. Raiding his garden was a treat and the fruit sweeter than candy.
He is survived by his sister, Minta (Robert Brandon); brother, Robert (Sandra Priest); sister, Karen Sonberg; his children, Harold Lynn Priest, Robert Dale Priest, Leah Laray Priest, Cheri Lavonne Wilkerson, David Paul Priest, Eugene Priest, Brandi Le'rae Priest, Jared Michael Priest, James Emmanuel Priest, Adam Paul Priest, and Rebecca Marie Priest. In addition, Harold had 25 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Harold gave true meaning to the spoken word, Go Forth and Multiply. Harold is predeceased by his parents, Lynn and Ivy Priest and by his brother, Earnest K. Priest.
The suffering has ended,
The final bell has rung,
And in the ending moments,
A new song's being sung.
As angels fly in splendor,
Praises sound out to God's name,
Another voice rings out true,
And Heaven's not the same..
The sound of Angels singing,
Changed in some small way,
A new voice has been added
In the chorus of the Day
Holy, Holy, Holy.
The words from Harold's heart,
Now he's in the hands for Christ,
With a brand new song and start !!!!

Rebecca Elizabeth Post
December 17, 1991 to June 28, 2003
Rebecca was born December 17, 1991, on her Opa Selles' birthday, in Fergus, Ontario.
She was always a very active child, never content on the ground. By the time she was eight she had broken 8 bones.
In August 1999, she fell 30 feet from a cherry tree and broke her femur. That healed well but then she climbed the bulletin board along the dyke, about eight feet off the ground and broke her toes and one foot.
She was always going down the road on wheels, bike, skateboard, scooter or roller blades.
But most importantly we remember Becky for the love she showed for the LORD. Becky wrote in her diary that she wanted to go to heaven and that she thanked God for every day that God let her live.
What a great comfort for us as a family. She was always so happy, so free with her hugs and "I love you's".
We remember Becky as a caring and loving child. She made friends with whomever she met. She was very open with her feelings and openly professed her faith in her LORD.
Whenever she saw someone crying, she would start crying along with them and ask them to stop for her. She always wondered what it would be like to be above the clouds. Now she knows, and now she's the happiest she's ever been. Happier than anyone can even begin to imagine.
Her loving parents, Barry and Sylvia Post
Her loving siblings, Leo, Jennifer, Kees, Philip and Katherine
