Mr. Beck was a special man with a very special place in our hearts. We have fond memories from our early days at FBC and the various in-home prayer meetings that we all were part of. While Heaven is rejoicing in its gain, we are saddened by our loss. However, there is blessed assurance that we'll see him again! The family will be in our thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks ahead. Lonnie and Janet Binnicker
