Tales from the Mountain

Pastor John’s view for November 2020 It had snowed all the previous day and night and all day that day but by evening, the sky was clearing and stars began popping out from behind the clouds.

Will

Do You Have a Will?

Remember Lakeview in Your Estate and Wills I know when my wife, Ruth Ellen, passed away in December, 2018, I realized about a year later, after I settled her estate, that I needed to change my Will to reflect not only her passing but that there were some charities that I also wanted to remember in my Will when I passed to the Lord. I also know that some people relook at their Will every New Year to make sure that…
