  1. Geoff, So sorry to hear about Jean. We’d been praying for you both for several months. Will keep you and your family in our prayers.

  2. Geoff, Samantha, Sean and family:
    Mike and I are so sad to hear of Jeanie’s passing. Although we were all in Sunday School together, I got to know Jean best when we co-taught a Bible School class. She was a delight and I loved her laugh.
    Please know that I will keep all of you and your families in my daily prayers. I pray that you will feel God’s loving arms around you to hold you up and keep you close to Him. Jeanie is at peace now for all eternity. Through your faith and ours, we know we will all be together again one day. Until then stay strong old friend. God loves you and so do we. Mike and Lana Congleton
