Dear Jan, I always remember your visits to Michigan and the times when you came to our church services in the bank. You and your husband were always such encouraging guests. We appreciated you so very much! We are so saddened to hear of Earl's passing but rejoice that he is experiencing life more full than we could ever know or realize here. The peace that God gives is beyond what man can offer so we are praying that God's closest presence will be with you and your family during these days. We are thinking of and praying for you throughout the day.
