Fred Burkey and Family:
Our hearts and prayer support go out to you all in the loss of Marilyn. She was a great wife and mom who supported her husband in his ministry to the BYC and the Brethren Church in the early years of their marriage. May God’s grace, mercy and comfort be your daily experience in the days ahead. Another “Well done” echos in heaven as Marilyn is greeted by her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!
In Christian Love,
Gene and Linda Geaslen
