  • Dear Martha, Matthias, Gerhard and Andreas, I wish to express my condolences at the loss of your husband and dad. I take comfort, as I'm sure you do as well, in the promise of the passage quoted from Romans 8:38-39. I have a couple of fond memories visiting with you all including your dad and your cousins at Victoria Beach, playing some soccer, and swimming. Your dad's commitment to help with teaching the Gemeinschaftsklasse at McDermot over many years was greatly appreciated. I enjoyed chatting with him over the phone a few times when he was no longer able to come to church. He was very proud of his sons and loved to talk about each of your achievements. May God comfort and strengthen you in this time of loss. Again, condolences from me and my family, as well as on behalf of our Church family at McDermot Ave Baptist Church. - Posted by: Marno Klein (Friend) on: Aug 11, 2021
