Just 2 1/2 weeks after our wonderful Family Christmas, Cherry's 96 year-old father passed away after a fall and a heart attack. These pages taken from Cherry's digital scrapbook, share part of the story of Dad Siebert's passing.
It was a sudden passing, and though we are grieving our loss, we are also celebrating that our father received his wish of seeing his Savior and being re-united with our dear mother who passed away in 2007. It was so special to have Cherry's three brothers and two sisters-in-law here (from the east and west coasts). Along with other family and relatives, we had a sweet, memorable time together sharing memories. The Memorial Service on Jan. 18 was filled with tributes and memories from the 38 years that Cherry's parents spent in Japan as missionaries with SEND, Int'l.
