Condolence & Memory Journal

I knew Fran and Bernie from working at Sunset. I am sorry to hear of this. Both Fran and Bernie were a wonderful couple who I enjoyed very much.

I remember Fran as a hospitable and kind pastor's wife when I came to Kalamazoo as a young wife and mother and knew no one. She had a wry humor and positive trust in our God and time spent with her was precious even though we lived in Kalamazoo for only a year. My deepest sympathies, Rev. Woudenberg, Phil and family and Luanne and family. May God comfort you with His grace and love as you lay her to rest.

I only knew her for a short while way back when, but she seems to always be genuinely happy and content.

She was a loving and caring aunt to me. I have a lot of great memories

Rev. Woudenberg, I wish to express my sympathy to you and yours in the death of your wife. The Lord will give you grace to bear this burden.
