Diane, You and your family are in my families prayers as you go through such a hard time. There's a favorite verse that has helped me in difficult times. Phil. 4:6 & 7 - Don't worried about anything, pray about everything. Tell God your needs and don't forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this you will experience God's peace which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. This peace will keep your heart and minds quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.

Steve & Joni, Please accept our most sincere condolences on the loss of your father. My family has been praying for him for quite some time. Unfortunately for us who are left behind, the answer to our prayer was not the one we were looking for. Only he truly knows the Glory of the Heavenly Kingdom as he has been "promoted" to eternal bliss. I am never good at "these things", but I felt compelled to let you know how much our hearts ache for you and the rest of your family. Our prayers are with you all -- especially for that bright new star in the sky tonight. Love & Prayers, The Curtis Family Rachael, Cliff, Brooklyn & Corbin

Diane, I knew Paul about 15 years ago when I hired him into Kendall College of Art and Design. It has been many years since we both left there and went on with our careers, but I remember him as a good person who loved you, his family, his work as an electrician and above all things, his Lord. I remember his great sense of humor and his common sense approach to solving problems. I have thought about him often over the years and know that this world is less of a place without him. I am so sorry to learn of his passing, but we can find comfort in the knowledge that he is now with his Savior in heaven. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

DIANE I'm so sorry to hear about Paul's death. I'm sorry I couldn't make it to the furneral. I would love to have seen your family and all your grandchildren. I will always remember the times when Paul would touch Chads hair and call him "Cotton Top". My first canoe ride at the cottage when Abe promised we wouldn't tip over. Thankfully we will keep these and many other memories of Paul alive in us. I would like to get together with you sometime, maybe lunch? If you still work in Jenison we could meet there. Please call when you get a chance. My phone number is 616-878-9554. Take care, Char
