Eloise and family, We are sad to hear of the passing of your Mother. I enjoyed seeing her smile across the aisle when we worked at Bird-in-Hand. We also lost our mother in May and there are no words to describe the feelings. Even at 90+ we wanted them a little longer. We do know that they have reunited with loved ones and are pain free. May you find comfort in the memories you have and the life you shared. May God bless you and bring you peace. The Spangler's

Sincerest condolences on the passing of Eleanor. I always enjoyed talking with her and catching up on the family. Of course, I remember Gene fondly as well. May God, family and friends comfort you.

Dear Eloise,
We are saddened to learn of the death of your mother. When I ( Linda) served on the Synod's Candidacy Committee with your father, I always looked forward to the summer meeting luncheon in Ronks at your parents' home. Your mother served us the most delicious lunches! I have many other lovely memories of time spent with both of them. Thinking of you and your family and sending love and prayers that the presence and promises of our Lord will bring you comfort and peace.
With hope,
Linda and Cliff Hanus- Payson, AZ

To the Hummel Children,
My sympathy to all of you and your families. Your mother was a big help to me back in my grade school years as a reading tutor. It helped me to better advance myself in school throughout the years. My God's peace & comfort help you all in your time of sorrow and remembering.
