"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Thankful Thurdsay - Our Parents and Grandparents

Mike and Betty Mauritzen, Cora and Gary Werley, and Yvonne Blevins
What we put on the back of our Wedding Day program 10 years ago and it still reigns true: To our parents, we could never thank you enough for all the many things you have done for our lives. You have played a role in shaping who we are today, and for that we offer immeasurable respect and gratitude. You have taught us how to build our lives on the foundation of Jesus Christ and how to love unselfishly. We pray that we may one day reflect your strength and love. Thank you for your support and understanding while planning this unforgettable day.
And to each of our grandparents who have played a unique and significant role in our lives. We praise God for these special people and their legacy :

Walter and Jeanne Mauritzen - Granddaddy and Jeannemommie
My Jeannemommie passed way almost 3 years ago now and I still miss her terribly.

Virginia Geist - my Mom's mother

Andrew's Grandparents - Peggy Neufeld, Charles Whitaker, Jane Harakal, Hazel and Sam Werley

We love you all and are so thankful for you!

Thanks for the picture of Mother & Daddy! Looking @ Mother in the pic, I can hardly believe how much she changed in the 7 years before she died 3 years ago. I still get choked up when I see pictures of her like this...
