I am so sorry to hear about Mrs Van Aken.  She was always such a sweet woman and a good friend to my mom so many years ago.  I think of your family often when I remember my growing up years in the Ellenville Reformed Church.  Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God encircle you with His love and care.
