"Michelle, another dear, dear, friend and mentor of mine died today and most certainly joined you in
Heaven. His name is Pastor Harold Gronstal. He was at Adam and Kelsey's wedding. This was a tough day for Kelsey... She misses you so much. It's hard for her to remember her wedding anniversary, because of the horrible incident that happened to you.  May God help us to trust and hold on to the promises that have been made complete for you and for Pastor Harold. We also pray for Mark and that he recovers and gets much stronger"
