Jerry Griess RIP

A couple weeks ago Rosalie and Pastor Hansen were talking about her husband’s health. Jerry Griess had been ill for a while, and he was slowing down more. He used to sing in our choir, so I asked if we might play a song in worship one of these next weeks, sort of a prayer for his healing. Well, he passed away the day before Valentine’s, painless and comforted by family (even Colorado family that traveled out last weekend), and now we’ll be singing to celebrate his life. The song Rosalie said he loved the most is “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”, which is about the coolest song I can think of, to celebrate a person’s life! Prayers for the whole family. We’ll celebrate his life with a memorial service on 23 June.
