  • May the Lord abundantly bless you with HIS peace, His comfort and HIS strength. Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Praising God she is at peace and in His loving arms

  • Dear family of Jeanne Fischer,

    I’m very to hear of your loss. There is comfort that can be found at Revelation 21: 3, 4, which says, “And he will wipe out the tears from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. ” Soon, losses we sustain of any kind, be it losing a loved one or our peace of mind, will be done away with. I hope this promise can carry you through this difficult time and beyond.

  • Hey, Bowdy, I am sooo sorry for the loss of your mom. I know how close you two always were. She was so much fun, as you were, and I know how much you will miss her. Life is just not the same without your mom, as I had to learn many years ago. Take care and know I have you in my heart in the days ahead. God Bless you and your family.


  • Kay and family,

    Herman and Jeanne were so dedicated and worked so hard for the Grace Brethren Church from about 1960 until the rest of their lives. Ken and Thelma are worshiping with them again, no doubt. Our sympathy and regards to all the family.

  • To Kay and Larry,
    Max and I send our love and sympathy to you in the loss of your loved one.
    We have sorta lost track of you, however, when we get back to Galion, we will try to make contact with you.
    Sincerely, Ruby and Max
