Junior Tucker Huseman works to complete the wheel portion of a trailer in his 6th period Ag Shop class with teacher Austin Heck.

“We usually try to build trailers to auction off at the FFA banquet for money to fund the FFA,” Huseman said. “Although it takes a lot of time and work, I learn skills of welding as well as hard word.”

From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to give our deepest thanks to the community of Nazareth. You have left your marks on our hearts. There truly aren’t words to express how much all of your love and support has touched us.

So many of you offered your condolences and reminded us often that Joe would never be forgotten. The thoughtfulness of this town is truly amazing. There are far too many of you to offer our appreciation individually! We are so grateful for your cards, flowers, dinners made for our family, every generous gift and every thoughtful deed. Your love and support have been our strength.

We will never forget the outpouring of love we have received here in Nazareth.

Love and thanks to all of you,

The Van Dijk Family
