Dear Faithful Readers:
On November 23, not quite 6 weeks ago, our dear friend, Dr. Susan Haack-Speichinger, was my guest blogger.
A few days ago Susan, after fighting a most courageous battle with cancer, went to be with the Savior she wrote about nearly every day of the year. We rejoice in her eternal life with Jesus but grieve because of the emptiness we feel in our hearts. Sunday morning church services without her beautiful violin accompaniment will be missed by the entire congregation who loves her dearly. Susan was also a devoted Stephen Minister, and we had high hopes she would be the one taking over the leadership of our congregation’s Stephen Ministry program. Hopefully, the unselfish life Susan lived will encourage us in the days ahead to do our best to follow her example.
Our prayers are with Susan’s beloved husband, Jim (Spice) Speichinger and all of their family and friends.
Blessed New Year and peace be with you,
