Gary & Beth and family, I am so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I so enjoyed being with both of your parents when they were at St. Marks UMC in Findlay. I especially enjoyed my conversations and emails with your dad, even through emails for awhile after they moved to Colorado. He had a very keen mind and sharp intellect. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time of loss for you but I know for him, he is rejoicing in finally receiving his heavenly reward which he waited so long for. Blessings and Peace, Mike Noggle
