We just heard today of Sister Geren's heavenly homegoing. They were our parsonage couple in Carl Jct., MO, many years ago. We loved them both so much! They were such a blessing to us and others.

Grandma and grandpa were there for me many times in my life. I'm forever grateful for their support and prayers that made me much of the man I am today. I know they are together again watching over our family as angels now.
