  • I appreciated how Jake was willing to share his knowledge when I approached him on taking minutes in meetings. He was very skilled and willing to critique, always to improve what I was doing. Barb, my thoughts are with you. I pray the memories you have will be your comfort. - Posted by: Ginny Thiessen (Friend) on: Oct 29, 2021

  • That final earthly parting Is hard no matter what age Perhaps because it is the end Of a relationship and The closer we are to that person The harder it is But praise God He does bring healing and gives comfort In the hope of our being reunited With our loved ones in the heavenly Kingdom How good it is to have the precious gift OF MEMORIES To which we hold unto till that day Remember God is your Arm that protects, Help that assures Wisdom that guides Love that endures Physician that heals - Posted by: Ernie & Martha Martens (Friends) on: Oct 28, 2021
