    We enjoyed many years as John and Dorothy’s neighbors on 97th Street. We were thankful for their z
    Christian testimony and their support for us as a young family. God is good!

    I appreciated the beautiful service that captured the lives of John and Dorothy very well. I was pleased to know both John and Dorothy during my years as executive director of Lakeside Village, and as a Christian and fellow member of Christ Community Church I felt an added bond with them.. Though their memories were both failing at the time, it was unmistakable that both of them had lived their lives close to Jesus. Alice was one of the most faithful and dedicated caregivers I have seen, and though I did not get to know a lot of the family members, I have no doubt of their love and caring for John and Dorothy as well. I wish you all God’s peace!
