    Larry Chanbers was a humble and dedicated servant of the Lord Jesus. He always seemed to be more interested in others and what needed to be done than in himself. We will miss his gentle way. May the Lord bless and keep all who knew and loved him and surround us all with His abiding care. Dennis and Katherine Maaske
