Read this news too late to attend the viewing. Condolences to the entire family...We
went to church with Cliff & Sheryl and for some reason my sister Mim thinks Carolyn
knew my mother Edna as well.

Carolyn and family, I am sorry for the many ways you will miss him - ways unique to
each of you! I have many fond memories of the years Jim and I spent at the Lighthouse
while he (and you, Carolyn!)served as pastor. I remember Sunday evenings for food (I
think ice cream and popcorn?) at your lovely home in the country, and his great sense
of humor. Thanking Go d for th e blessing of your entire family to Jim and me as we
started our lives together and sought out service/ministry options. Blessings in your
days ahead! Kathy
