"Dear Roger, Jan, Abby, Nate, Kyle, Britt and all those lovely great grandchildren. I am praying for you during this time of reflection, loss and I know celebration that Mrs. Spoelman is now with the Lord! As your dad told me... she was impactful to her last day in witnessing and sharing God's eternal love, forgiveness, mercy and sacrifice to so many. What a remarkable heritage for all of you as well as generations of her descendants yet to come. I remember 3 years ago at Thanksgiving dinner when she broke out into song ... praising the Lord... remarkable... I will remember her humility, her smile and most of all her faithfulness. To the entire family please know you remain in my thoughts and prayers...
