  1. Ralph & Doris Jacobson :

    George Janzen was a true brother in Christ and a faithful servant of the Church. I admired him for his dependability and for his willingness to serve. For George the message in Revelation 14:13 has special significance. It says, “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord…for their deeds do follow them”. I would encourage the family with these words.

    We will always remember George for his faithfulness to God and to his family. To live for others for awhile is relatively easy; to do it over a lifetime is remarkable. May God comfort you in your sorrow with the knowledge that parting is not forever. May he encourage you to joy as you remember George and the twinkle that was often in his eye!
