I wish to express my sympathy to the Frey family. I attended Plum Creek Baptist church when Harm and Leona attended there also.
You have my prayers as you adjust to your loss.
With Sincere Sympathy,

Harm and Leona were a very special brother and sister to us. Together we went on many trips to visit relatives and places of interest. We look forward to meeting them again when our Lord calls us home. We extend our sympathy to Harm's family, relatives, and friends. God bless you all.
