Paul and family,
Viv and I are unable to make the visitation and the celebration of Marilyn's life. Our prayers are with each one of you as you give God thanks for the many moments of joy you have had over all the years together. Yes, years of ministry, years of ups and downs and challenges, joys and victories. We enjoyed and treasure our relationships with you and Marilyn and your family. Need something, don't hesitate to give us a call. Ivan and Viv Horn
