Lynn Charles Finken

“Do Farmers farm in Heaven?” My young son asked me, so sad.. So many times he’d ridden on The tractor with my Dad.. “Sure they do”, I told him as His eyes turned to the sky. “God gives us all a job to do In Heaven when we die”. “But, what do Farmers plant up there?” He asked , so sure that I would know.. So I said “come sit, let’s talk a bit” “about what farmers in Heaven grow..” I told how there was so much food with fields of flowers everywhere, And how a farmer like his Grandpa Was really needed there.. Then his eyes turned towards the window At the tractor by the barn And he said( as if I didn’t know) ”But he forgot his tractor Mom” I smiled and tickled him a bit Saying “Grandpa knows that too…. Heaven has a lot of tractors so.. He left his here for you.” -Author Unknown In Loving Memory Of Lynn Charles Finken Born April 7, 1923 Beebetown, Iowa Entered Into Rest January 10, 2015 Omaha, Nebraska Funeral Services 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, January 14, 2015 St. Paul‘s Lutheran Church Missouri Valley, Iowa Officiating Pastor Stephen Pera Organist Clare Cowing Vocalist Ron Halvorson “On Eagles Wings” Congregational “How Great Thou Art” “Beautiful Savior” Casket Bearers Aaron Finken Nathan Fullerton Kyle Finken Bradon Fullerton Jake Finken Todd Heim Mark Finken Ryan Lawler Final Resting Place Wednesday 2:00 p.m. Linwood Cemetery Beebeetown, Iowa Lynn C.
