We remember meeting you in a missions conference in Morrisonville, IL shortly before leaving for Germany back in the 60s. Now we, with you, look back on what the Lord has done with our lives in the years since. They are marked by His grace and faithfulness. Since retirement from Germany in 2004 we have been helping the Home Office in their efforts to maintain contact with the retirees, especially those from Africa and Europe. On behalf of your fellow BMM Family members we express our love and sympathy at his time of your loss and rejoice with you in Dorothy's "gain". Virgil and Dolores Bunjer
