Just learned of Mike's death. I remember Mike and Helen as great folks when I was serving as pastor of Warrenton Church.

Dear Bosler Family, I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) Our loving Creator has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,
