The Lord has called home one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. She so ministered to my mother, Mary Kull, and to my mother-in-law, Selma Crandall. Don, we are praying for God to sustain you and your family and give you peace during this difficult time. Thanks for being such a wonderful, godly man yourself.
