Condolences for the family of “KORTMAN, ENA”

Condolence from Ed and Joan Laarman on December 22nd, 2015 10:28 pm

Dear family of Ena Kortman: I was only 9 years old when Aunt Ena, Uncle Hank, and their family moved to Phoenix, and I seldom saw her in the years since. Still, I have good memories of Aunt Ena (and the rest of the family). I thank God for her, and especially for her firm, lifelong faith. I wish that I could be with you all as you say farewell to Ena, give thanks for her life, and commit her to her Lord and Savior. May God comfort and bless you all!

Condolence from Paul and Kathy Spoelma on December 23rd, 2015 8:22 pm

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Aunt Ena. However we rejoice in the promise that she is in her heavenly home . She was a kind and caring person and will be missed. I still have fond memories of the time I spent in Phoenix during the early 70’s. Aunt Ena was very supportive of me during that time of my life. Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers at his difficult time. May God keep you in the hollow of His hand.
