Dear Rick, Barb and family,
The Lord has blessed you, Rick, and your beloved father, with many years together. Now we know where your musical talent came from and how wonderful to share a love or God's truths through song. May you be comforted by the words of our Lord to the Apostle Paul, "My grace is sufficient for thee.." We pray, especially, for safety on the roads this week with the winter weather upon us and look forward to seeing you back in church next week. In Christ's Love, Frank and Jane Nibbelink, Beverly Reformed Church
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
