We were very sad to hear about the passing of Brother Gheorghe Niculcea. He was always a joy to be around and will be greatly missed at the next gathering we have at Abel and Renee's. One day we will meet him again and what a blessing it will be to see him reunited with his beautiful wife and children!
    Our sincerest condolences go out to all the Niculcea family. I know there is nothing I can say that will help ease the pain, but please know we are praying for you! We think you all are a wonderful Christian family, that is a product of a real Godly man.
 Love and prayers,
Joel and Robin Yeske
