  1. April and Crystal and families, We send our sympathy to you and our prayers for comfort from our loving Father in Heaven. Sorry this is coming so late but just found out about your dad’s passing and did not know that your mother had died as well. They were both very special to us and were such a big help and encouragement for us while we served at camp. Yes, your dad loved being on the mower or tractor out on the trails at camp. We have sent a memorial gift to MMCCC for both your mom and your dad.
    Clarence and Trudy Reiss
