This past Thursday our Father in heaven took our beloved sister, Marie Brummel, to be with Him in heavenly glory. We express our sympathy to the Brummel family. May our Lord and Savior comfort their hearts in their sorrow. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
