I was so sorry to hear about Fran"s passing. As I am sure you know she was my secretary at Bethel Church. SHE WAS A GREAT HELP TO ME DURING THOSE DAYS. she was a perfectionist in her work. If she ever found a mistake she would start all over again on the bulletins. She was such a wonderful person and a testimony to her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I am sure that she and Bud are together again. May the Lord bless and comfort your hearts. Love and prayers Pastor and Delores McElwee

Barb and Janice, I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I loved your mom (and your dad). They were our leaders in Jr. AYF and your mom was so patient and thoughtful, from commiserating with me about getting runs in my hose, to responding when I posed theological questions on predestination! I enjoyed spending time with both your parents when I returned for visits. Who could forget your dad's sense of humor and your mom was such a "people person" - interested in everyone she met. She will be greatly missed here, and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. God bless.

Barb & Jan, Eloise & I are so happy to have known your mother & father. They have meant so much to our family -- encouraging our daughters, just recognizing them even giving Wynelle a ride to see David before they were married plus so many other ways showing friendship and love. Our prayers are for you and your family. May you experience His peace. Love, Victor & Eloise Koehn

Barb and Jan, We have many fond memories of fun times with your Mom and Dad. We especially remember their visit to our mission station in the jungles of Kalimantan in 1983 just after your Father retired. They were such great sports and were even willing to bathe in the dirty little river in the village where we took them for the weekend. We especially appreciated your Mom and Dad opening their home and heart to our son Steve when he had just graduated from Dalat MK school and returned to America to attend Purdue. May the many memories you each share of your Mom bring great comfort and peace to your heart at this time and in the days and years ahead. She was a true saint and an amazing lady.

My sincerest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing someone in death. May you take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4, which says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse brought me peace when I experienced loss, I hope it can do the same for you. May the memories you have give you strength during this difficult time.

Mckenzie, Savannah, GA

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw.org.

Niecy, Savannah, GA

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.
