From Jean:

A Public Announcement:

"We have a wonderful God and savior whom I dearly love. He has directed my paths ever since I was a child.

I became a born again Christian since 1973 in November. I raised my two children Daniel Joseph Vlk who is now with the Lord and his sister Deeanne Jill Vlk-Graf, who lives in Washington state. I dearly loved my children and tried to raise them for the Lord, the best I could.

I have enjoyed teaching bible studies, and choirs all my life to children and pre-teens, at various churches.

I am anxiously awaiting to see my lovely Jesus and all my dear friends, who have gone on before me. Plus my sweet Mom and Dad and Grandma and my wonderful son Danny.

I love my wonderful church and bible family at God's Grace Church. I love teaching children and really enjoyed teaching the few years, to the little ones at Grace Chapel in Phoenix and Bible Fellowship in Phoenix.

I pray God keep his hand on all of them until we meet one day in heaven.

Thank you and bless you and every one of your church and may God make it grow mightily at Tempe God's Grace Church." - Jean Wright

I remember taking gramma to go shopping on Sundays to Fry's and Wal-Mart and we would race each other up and down the aisles looking for marciano cherries or puzzles. I looked forward to spending time with her. Sundays will never be the same without her.
