Joni's father, George Riemersma, went home to be with the Lord yesterday morning. I have fond memories of him dating back to when I was a young girl. He and his wife were always very wonderful to all of my children and considered us all family. Please pray for his wife and his family as they say good bye to a wonderful man. He lived a VERY full life that took him from Holland to South Africa (where Joni was born) and then to America when she was a little girl. He spoke many languages and was full of conversation always!
This is Isaac's birth grandfather, and while they aren't related by blood due to Bri also being adopted, we've realized there is so much more to family than blood!
