  • Dear Family,

    The Faust family became more real to me when I cut Esther”s grass for a summer. When I was done she and I would sit and talk for some time. Many a story was told of the family and its history. Just as proud as she was of her family, I have to say I am equally as proud to have called Jerry a friend and a Lodge Brother. Jerry helped fill in many gaps that the stories Esther told had left. Thanks so much for our time together. Mary and I will never forget you. God bless all the family in this sad time.

    Love from both of us, John and Mary Beutel.

  • I am very sorry to learn of Jerry’s passing. I so enjoyed Jerry and Nancy for many years and will never forget our good times together in Bible Study . He was a fun person and will be missed. I know each one of you in the family will miss him and each in your own way. Praying for you and our God will meet each of your times of grief. And your fun good times will surface more each day. God Bless you all! Love , Neal and Jean Reed
