  4. Christy condolence:

    Dear Mindy, Phyllis, & Family,

    I admire Mr. O for running his race cheerfully and bravely, and you for supporting him all the way. Many have appreciated his upbeat, jovial, and joyful attitude. He had a sparkle in his eye, and brought an energetic strength and “a lighter side” into a room. He had a wonderful laugh!
    I can’t imagine how much you miss him. I do imagine he is worshiping God with even more vigor, unimpaired by any ailments now.

    You’re in the hands of a good God. He cares. He weeps with you.
    He will strengthen and comfort you.<3

    Holding you in prayer,

  5. Ron and Sheryl Bede condolence:

    Dear Mindy, Phyllis and family,
    He was a Godly man and an inspiration to us. His love for Jesus was evident and radiant. Will always remember our men’s retreats, Bible studies, fellowship camp outings with him and family. He ran the race, fought the fight, and now with Jesus. Thanks for your witness Denny! You’ll be missed.

  6. Donald condolence:

    Dear Ondrovics,

    Mr. O was a servant leader.
    Thank you as well for your example, serving beside him.
    In his lifetime he did many small things with great love and care, just like His Savior.
    “Hope to the end, for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (I Peter 1:13).
