Cheryl Vivian

VanWeerden Family,

I’m sorry I will not be able to attend the service for John after all as I had thought & hoped to.

I will always remember John from when I was much younger attending Castledowns Pentecostal Church (late 1980’s) & in my more recent time with him as I volunteer at Citadel Care Centre.

You all are in my thoughts and prayers during this time. Please keep in touch.
