  1. Condolences to the family from one of Leola’s freshman roommates at Bethel College. We lost touch through the years but remember well the friendship we had. Sorry to see her leave us but rejoicing in her release from earthly cares. May God’s love and peace comfort you in your time of adjustment to life without her presence.
    Sincerely,
    Marilyn (Siemens) Krehbiel.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).
