When I was a young girl about the age of 12, my father died and my mom was left to take care of six children between the ages of 3 to 14. Uncle Carl and Aunt Vera were a wonderful support to my mom and to our family. They have always shown much Christian love and compassion to our family over the years, as well as, many other families. They have a heart for God and diligently reaching the lost for Christ! Rest well Uncle Carl! Matthew 25 thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Cheryl (Minor) Kirton and Family Kelso, Washington
