Deepest condolences, Verena and Humphrey and Family! It was a joy seeing the two of you together, Verena. Marshall's kindness and deep love were so evident. May the Lord's comfort and encouragement from His word be very close to you in this time of good-bye: "In a little while we are going home."

We are sending sincere condolences to the Longard family. Marshall was a kind man and will be dearly missed. We are enjoying reading his book about the incredible life he experienced in Timberlea. He certainly enjoyed life to the fullest.
We are out of town, and regret we will not be able to attend the funeral. God Bless!
