Don, Dan and Gretchen: Our hope and our strength are found in Christ. He will guide your footsteps. I enjoyed Jan’s love for the Lord and the joy she had as she taught the children to learn and grow in Him. Now she can rest in His arms and be free of all human sufferings and we can thank Him for how He showed mercy. Our prayers are with you. Blessings!

Dear Don, Dan, Gretchen, Ron and families,
Jan was a special friend. Teaching songs of honor, grace and love of Jesus, to the little children in Sunday School and in the Awana Clubs will always be a special part of my memories of her.
Then there were the special times of traveling to and from Bible Study Fellowship and the discussions that ensued.. Precious moments! She will be missed and we look forward to reconnecting with her on heaven's side.
May God grant you His comfort and blessings,
Peter and Nancy
