  1. Henk, I am going to be out of state Friday. My heart will be with you as you say goodbye to your beautiful wife. We pray that you feel the strength of the Lord as He walks this journey with you. That all the family remember her love for each of them and her reliance on God. I will remember her heart smile.

  3. Dear Hank Schlebaumand and family Bev and I was so sorry to hear of the death of Dorrine and we extend to you our sympathy. We loved all the times that we got to be with you at Shiloh Community Church and the times we were at your home in Ionia. My favorite thing I remember about Dorrine was that she would always would write a poem about the message that I preached on Sunday and I loved that when she would give a copy of the poem to me and I still have them. II Corinthians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort” Pastor Ken Harger

  5. Dear Hank and Tim:
    I just now read about Dorrine’s death, and am sorry that I wasn’t able to attend her service. I would have loved to see you both and do some reminiscing. Please know that I am thinking about you as you go through this very difficult time.
