Laura and family,
My heart and prayers go out to you. I recall being out at the farm as a kid and Lawrence having a big smile when showing me the collection of arrowheads he had found. The last time I saw him was at the Langdon 125th centennial and I really enjoyed our conversation together. He will be missed and remembered.

Laura & Family, It wasn't long ago you guys were in Wal-Mart in GF and Lawrence looked at me and said-you are a Hardy girl. And I said yep and you are Mr. Thielbar because I could not remember his first name. It is times like this that we are glad to come from a community or area that even with miles between us we recognize our neighbors. May you all find comfort in all the memories and those that surround you with thoughts and prayers. Don & Michelle (Hardy) Murray

The Gospel message, "Good News" concerning Christ and the way of salvation.

And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,
- Hebrews 9:27

Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
- John 14:6

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
- Romans 10:13
