Steve! So glad to hear from long ago Ken and I were married by you....had to find our marriage certificate to show at Social Security office and it brought back memories--and a wonderful photo of us in the area of St. Paul's in New Albany..I'll have that at his memorial service in just 2 weeks. Thanks again for posting. I'm doing better every day. Remembering the times when we could still do things together is helpful. Hope you are well and enjoying your life. Dianne Hill...

Dear Schomaker Family, I am so sorry for your loss. When we lose a love one in death it is never easy. During this difficult time may your family find comfort in Gods word the Bible that soon we will see our love ones again. -John 5:28,29
