Tim, Just received word of Val's passing. I'm very sorry. Please know that we're praying for your family, and I will let our congregation know as well, as many of us were in school with you and Val. I'm thankful to know that we'll have a grand reunion with our classmates again one Day. May the peace of Christ be with you and your family. Ken
