  • Dear JW, Nathan, Rachel, Matthew and Amanda,
    Rich and I were stunned to hear of Deb’s passing. Having moved from our home at 914 Grandview Rd, in Akron several years ago, to our new home in Wilmington, NC, we had not been in touch for quite some time, other than via FB, occasionally. We will always remember fondly the two years you, JW, and Deb lived in and cared for our home while we were on a two year VS term. When we came home, there had been so much love and care put into our home that for the 12 years after our VS term, we could see Deb’s fingerprints all around the property. I will always be grateful for the holy spaces she created in my gardens. There are no words that can take this grief from us. The world has lost a beautiful soul. Holding all of you in the Light, Jan and Rich Landes
