    My Condolences are with you this special week , my heart is hurting today and is sad that this is a way that I believe God Almighty is showing us people that are left that he is coming for all of us .
    I know that I have talked to Uncle Amos since I am in Kenya Africa as a Pastor and he was so Happy to know that the Gospel could preached all the way in Africa with some of his Yoder relations , He was so Happy .
    My hope and Prayers are that we all someday can be with our savior Jesus Christ in Heaven .
    With the many miles that separate us , is the only reason I am not able to be with you all , But Gods Blessings Betty and all the Children and Grand Children .
