DeYoung Family -

I wish I was able to attend today along with mom & dad and see everyone in person. So many wonderful memories - swimming in the pool, drives to church & events, ping-pong games in basement, food for hungry hard-working teenagers, etc. She is missed on earth but we know that she is enjoying heaven with Jesus. "He is the true God and eternal life." 1 John 5:20.

Dear Don and family,
Marilyn and me and ALL our family extends to you our sincere sympathy, love and commitment to be praying for you. Liz was such a delight and source of joy to all of us. Don, thank you for opening up your home so often to us for ministry and your love. We have always loved you both so much and your family felt like our family. We thank God for all the fond memories of Liz. And I'll always remember her chiding me for dipping into the cooky jar (which we gave her!!!!). We love you and know that God will be honored and that He will give you grace and peace.
Pastor Bob, Marilyn and entire King family.
