Tree of Life

Tree of Life artwork commissioned from artist, Jeffrey Roderick, of Rockford, IL hangs prominently in the entrance and living room of our funeral home.   We chose the Tree of Life to be a reminder of the hope and promise of heaven that God has proclaimed in the books of Genesis and Revelation.  In his art, Jeff captured our love of stained glass and our request to incorporate a Celtic knot symbolizing the Trinity. His rendition of the Tree of Life captures the vibrancy, energy and power spoken of in Scripture.

Revelation 22 (NLT) Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit,with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations. No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and His servants will worship Him. And they will see His face, and His name will be written on their foreheads. And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
