Dearest family and friends: This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Jeff Behling, a dedicated husband, father, son, brother and friend who passed away all too suddenly on September 17, 2014. Although he left us too soon, he affected many and we will remember him forever.

A year has passed all too quickly, and sometimes too slowly, we have endured triumphs and trials along the way but through it all, we continue to be upheld by the love and support of so many.

We love you all greatly and appreciate your continued prayers as we continue this forever journey.  We are grateful that God is holding us under His wings and caring for us through all of you.  

With Abundant Love, Tanna, Anya and Cole

"Aubrey and I just watched a video a few days ago where the Behling's, the Looney's, and our family were celebrating Labor Day  together.  Was neat to see and brought back great memories. The oldest kids were about six at the most I think.  Anyway, Aubrey and I said a little prayer for Jeff. Miss him but know he is in heaven with God."

"Dear Tanna, Anya and Cole,
On this anniversary our prayers are for you still to feel the love of God, family and your friends that hold you all so dear. That you continue to heal and grow in Christ. Through this year you all have shown remarkable faith and have shined Jesus as you have gotten your strength from Him to go on.
Much love and continued prayers to each of you."

"Today on this anniversary I wanted you to know you are being laid before the throne of God for assurance and peace, comfort and mercy.  I'm praying God envelops your heart with truth and you cling to him with all you've got.  I know God is strengthening you through these trials you are enduring even if you don't sense it.  You may have never felt weaker.  I'm praying for your Aaron and Hur to come along side you when your arms/heart are too weary for battle and they help hold you up.  The rest of us are holding you up in prayer.  God is faithful to have you on my heart."

This tribute was added by Cammy Cavan on 19th May 2015

"Tanna, Anya, and Cole,

My thoughts and heart are in your place of grief.  I know how hard and unfair it seems to not have your Daddy here present with you.  He is with you in a GREATER sense, He is right by, letting Jesus know to tell you how much He loves you!  You are created for a purpose.  You have the strength to tell your stories, each individual, and each so impactful.  You are LOVED, you are so precious and important in this world to carry on the gift of Love that has been given to you.  xoxox
Cammy"

"Happy Birthday Jeff..........

I wish you were here today
even for just a little while
so I could say Happy Birthday my son
and see your wonderful smile.

Your gifts today will be
the ones you left behind
your beautiful wife and children that love you so much.
and our precious memories...the very best kind.

Today I'll do my  best
to try and find a happy place...
as I struggle to hide my heavy heart
and the tears upon my face.

I find relief through the pain today my love
in knowing that you are at peace
We will forever miss you and find comfort
that you are with our Lord in Heaven above.

Love,
Mom"

"You will be missed. I remember, you always were the first to smile and the last to leave. God bless you. May your family never forget the mark you left on the world. Anya may you be strong and remember the happier times. Jeff you are always in my heart and I hope you are batting a thousand up there - if I'm pitching to you someday I know the average will go up. Love - Bucky"

"My deepest sympathy to the Behling family. I didn't know him, but I know the pain. It was so comforting to see so many use the scriptures to offer comfort. Our loving Father knows exactly how to comfort us. He promised in Isa. 25:8 "he will swallow up death in victory and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all of our faces----". That helped me tremendously along with John 5:28, 29. I hope it helps you through this time of need. Again sorry for your loss."

A reminder of how it once was when you were truly mine.
Rest peacefully my gentle boy in the absence of pain
Until we meet again my love.......some time does yet remain.

Mom"

Isaiah 40:18-31
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
