Dear Vanpelt Family,
I wish to send you all my deepest sympathy for the temporary loss of your mother. I went to school with Jackie from grade school on up. She was a quiet soul. She had a sweet spirit about her and we were friends. I pray that in light of her illness she had time to ponder the meaning of her life and found Jesus Christ as her Savior. I pray she is at peace. I know that her life and homegoing will bring ponderance for you all so you can reflect how your lives and how short of time life can be and therefore make the most of it while you can. No one knows the hour or the day we each go to eternity, but one thing is for sure...Jesus is the answer and holds all the keys to eternal life forever and ever. Peace to you all and remember...Jesus Christ is Lord. ~Shawna Weiss
