Garry and I lost a good friend today. Pastor Stan Vanderklay was one of the Pastors at our church, Pleasant Street Christian Reformed Church and was the interim Senior Pastor during the Church’s long search for a permanent new Pastor. Above all, Stan was our friend.
Yesterday we were swapping emails and puns with Stan. He had a great sense of humor and was particularly fond of puns. Today, without warning, while having lunch with a friend, he passed out and died.
A friend and a companion, he presided over our last vow renewal. We will miss him very much. We already do.
