Bill and I will always cherish the memory of Ivan as a loving husband to Carolyn and a Godly example to all who knew him. May He rest in peace the arms of his precious Saviour till we all meet again in Heaven. Prayers for Carolyn and the family.

We so appreciate the involvement and service to our Lord of Ivan and Carolyn, in the life of our church, Golden Harvest Baptist. They have been dear friends of ours for many years and at this sad time I am praying for Carolyn and his family left behind. Sadness for us, but great happiness for Ivan to be with his Lord and Saviour. My husband Bill always enjoyed talking to Ivan about spiritual things and many other things of this world. I told Carolyn today that I have no doubt that much discussion has gone on in heaven already today between the two of them.

Psalm 116:15
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Ivan was known to us as a soft spoken, gentle man who always had a beautiful smile and contagious laugh. If there was an ailment in our mist he would research it and present us with a plan on how to make it better. He was a dedicated student of the bible, teacher and a deacon for many years. Praying for Carolyn and the family he leaves behind. Love Brenda and Jochem Korten
