Our Beloved Co-founder and Treasurer for over ten years, Dalton Harper died on Decemberer 31, 2005. His funeral was on January
It is difficult to find words of solace when one is in shock over sad news. We who have worked with Dalton for these many years
know what a valuable asset he was to ASA Korea, and what a loving and devoted Friend,Husband, Father and grandfather he has
been in his life. Dalton was ' one of a kind'. If you wish to send condolences to his family, please send to Mrs Phyllis Harper, 110
Forest Circle, Palmyra, PA 17078-9745.
It is at times like this that we seek solace and find it in Holy scripture: From Jeremiah 14, " You are in our midst, O Lord, and you
have named us yours; do not forsake us, O Lord our God.
From John's Gospel, Chapter 14, the words of Jesus, "Peace is My Parting gift to you, my own Peace, such as the world cannot give.
Set your troubled hearts at rest, and banish your fears"
And the comforting words from the Christ from Matthew 11, " come to Me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you
rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest...."
And again, from Jesus, Matthew 28, "LO, Iam with you always, even to the end of the age."
We will miss you, Dalton You are special and we love you. The Poet Edward Gloeggler, wrote: "Over the hill lies a beautiful valley,
but you have to climb the hill to see it." Dalton has climbed that hill, and shares that valley in the beauty of the Lord who has
redeeed him and welcomes him to eternal life. When we were Baptized into Christ Jesus, we were baptized into His death.
We were buried therefore with Him by Baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we
too might live a new life, For if we have been united in a death like His, we shall certanly be united with Him in a Resurrection like
May God in His mery comfort Phyllis and her family. Rest in peace, dear Dalton. You have earned the crown of eternal Life.
