Remembering Larry Behrens 2/15/1938 -- 9/29/2017


 With heavy hearts we said goodbye to Larry at a wonderful

 service on October 4 when over 150 people gathered in the

 sanctuary to remember his quick sense of humor and deep

 love for his family. Our prayers are with Agnes and their

 family as we all miss him.
