It has been many years seen last seeing the The Boelema Family. I was sad to read of Mrs Boelema's passing. Mrs Boelema was always very nice to us kids as we played in the summer at the lake as was Mr Boelema. Over the years I have wondered how they have been. The Wyman family send our sympathy and are sorry for your loss of your mother.

So sorry for your loss. I was in the service with Ken in WWII and was lucky enough to see him and Joan several times since then. We last saw them, when they visited the USS New Jersey Battleship. They were a great couple.

Aunt Joan will be missed and I am thankful for her love & prayers during my difficult times. She was a living example of Christ in the way she lived her life. I will miss seeing and talking with her. I am sorry I am not home to be with you all to celebrate her life. You are in my prayers. Love, Barb

For all of the family, our hearts go out to you. I would like to share this verse. I believe Jim O may have seen it snce it was today's verse of the day from Biblegateway. I especially was struck by the NLT as you will notice.
Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and also in me. There is enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, I would have told you. I am
