    We are so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. Thank you to Don for blessing all 8 of our kids by letting them ride in the combine with you through the years. It is a cherished memory for all of them, right down to our 6 year old, who got his first ride in the combine with you last fall. He was so excited and still talks about it. We pray that Don’s family will be comforted by his memory and most especially with the confidence that comes in knowing he was a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Well done, good and faithful servant.

    Greetings in Jesus Name, Jane and family. This morning I was sorry to hear announced in Kempton Christian Church that Don had died. I would like to have come to the visitation but last evening my wife twisted her artificial knee joint and is barely able to walk today. So I am staying home with her in case she needs help.
    Please accept my prayers for your loss and my gratitude for Don’s faithfulness to the Lord. As Revelation 14:13 says, “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”
