William DeRoos - June 11, 2024

Psalm 119 vs 105 states: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. My Aunt Coby or more affectionately known as Tante Co was my mom’s twin sister. In our growing up years, we as a family would visit my aunt and uncle in Cobourg ON, on many occasions. Always an enjoyable time visiting and sharing with cousins and especially Tante Co and Oom Tim. That tradition continued well into my teens, twenties and so on. The trust and love bonds were such that when I had questions about faith and eternal security, I turned to Tante Co for direction. Her gentleness, genuine concern and wisdom, led me to surrender my life to Christ after a lengthy discussion. I love you, Tante Co and enter now into the joy of the Lord. We’ll meet again, soon! Love Nephew Bill

Bonnie Rhebergen - June 11, 2024
