  1. Joan, Steve, Shari, Scott and Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. Having lived on University Circle for 40 years it was a joy to know many in Rev. Mace’s Westminster congregation.

    Many years have passed for our families but school memories do remain. Sending sympathies from us, Jeff, Chicago, IL, Mark, Roswell, NM and Kevin, Vermillion, SD.

    May God bless you all with peace and comfort at this sad time.
    Helen and Gordon Murley
