  1. My sincerest sympathy to Margaret and the rest of the family. It may have been many years, but I still remember and think of him often. May God hold you all close in this time of sorrow.

  2. My deepest sympathies for the Wessels family. JC has a new body, and a perfect life in heaven with God. He is impatiently waiting for all of his loved ones to join him one day. Prayers that we all hear “well done my good and faithful servant” and see the face of our Lord just as JC did.

  3. Margaret, we are so sad about J C, he was such a wonderful man and he will be deeply missed. Our hearts are so sad and we pray for God to help you in this difficult time, if there is anything we can do for you please let us know. You and your family will be in out prayers and we have no doubt that J C is in Heaven watching over you. We love you.

    Charles and Linda Bezan
