    Dear Cathy, Bill, Brian and Stephen:
    Your mom and dad played such an important role in our church as our kids were growing up. I never walk through the Sunday School room without thinking of all the work she did with our kids. Your dad, always the jokester, had such a positive attitude. No matter how many aches or pains he had, he would be peeling apples or doing whatever needed to be done to help at the church. So sad that during the pandemic, you will be missing so many hugs. He was so proud of all of you and your families. Everyone at Corunna United loved your parents.
