Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Sim, Gem, and Family, I wanted to write to share my experiences with Dorothy and Elpidio, also. I always enjoyed my visits with them in your family home. They were such wonderful people and always thought of the needs of others before considering their own needs. Being the people they were, countless others benefitted from their generosity and care across the decades. I give thanks to God for the gift of their lives. Please know that you and your family are being remembered in prayers. May you find comfort in knowing that others care and that God is present with you. Pastor Peggy Niederer
