Those attending Camp Manitoqua this

We want to thank our Emmanuel family for all their expressions of
care and concern during our son’s, David, illness and death.  All the
cards that we have received during the past year, the prayers offered
and concerns voiced were all greatly appreciated.  Thank you to
Pastor Rich, Martin Koster and Scott Findley for attending David’s
service.  One of David’s last comments was “whatever God has
done or hasn’t done, we trust Him.”  
                                                       Love, Don & Martha Smith
