My deepest condolences at your loss. I cannot express my deepest appreciation and humble thanks to Velma and John Dittmer. In 1963, they took three sisters, who trudged across town to VBS, under their wings and discipled them for the next decade. They were the ones who led me to the Lord one Sunday evening, August, 1970, and taught me to always seek God’s plan for my life. I do not think I would be a Christian today, nor in Christian education today, if it weren’t for them. I am eternally grateful to God for their hearts of service and ministry. May God bless your family with their rich, Christian legacy. I’m looking forward to seeing Velma and John in heaven.
