    My sympathies to the family. Many great memories of your Dad. From the days at Valley View Baptist, his Trustee responsibility at Grace University while I served as VP Operations and Finance, and more recently as I stopped by their condo in west Omaha to visit during my return to the mid-west to stay in contact with relatives and friends. Praise God, he’s home at last. P.S. – Lost my dear wife 3 1/2 years ago. Marvin Epp 678-427-9737.
