Frank Johnston entered his heavenly home about 7:30 Thursday evening. Pat, Susan, Jeff, Will and I were with him at the time. It is hard to say good-bye to one who has meant so much to us and to so many others. But, there is comfort to be found for all of us in Jesus' promise that Frank is now peacefully in the home lovingly prepared for him by the Heavenly Father he served so well all his life. Plans are being made for a small family service in the near future. A service celebrating Frank's life will be planned in the future when we can gather freely in the church building together.
We have also learned that Mary Murray, the mother of Julie Koontz, entered her heavenly home Wednesday night. Julie and Tracy had traveled to Ohio last weekend to spend some time with Mary, knowing this would likely be their last visit with her. They travelled again to Ohio this last weekend. We wish them traveling mercies.
Charlotte Nelson, Paul Rabe’s mother, died on July 31 at the nursing home where she lived in California. Paul and Cheryl traveled to California for Charlotte’s service, which was on Friday, August 21.
Grace and peace to all of you!
