My condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one. May pleasant memories of Jewel bring comfort during your time of sorrow and remembrance, along with God's promise in the Bible at John 5:21, 28 and 29.

Jehovah is the God of Comfort who can and will heal your broken heart. For His Son, Jesus, said: "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life." (John 11:25)

Dear Labbs family,

My heartfelt condolences are extended to you all for the loss of your dear loved one, Jewel. My hope is that the following scripture will bring you a measure of comfort at this difficult time. God promises that very soon, we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away. (Isaiah 26:19)

My dearest special friend and co-worker in Christ. We shared a wonderful ministry together. I will never forget how she supported, encouraged and witnessed the love of Christ to me. The crown Jewel now wears is not a crown of jewels but the crown of eternal life given to her by Gods grace through faith alone.

I remember our families getting together When I was much younger. Your mom is now part of the heavenly choir. But she will be missed here on earth.

I met Jewel and Chuck at a National Lutheran Administrator’s Conference in Phoenix a few years ago. They invited me to sit with them at dinner. We enjoyed great conversation as we got to know each other. I know she will be greatly missed by family and friends. I thank God for her and the blessing she has been in the lives of many!

Our hearts go out to the extended Laabs family. Jewel was a sweet Christian friend to everyone. She'll be missed. We'll be in NC visiting with Scott and family when you are celebrating her life during the Memorial service at St. Paul. Know that we'll be there in spirit. Love, Rick and Ruth
