To the Belleman Family,
May our God comfort your hearts on the home going to heaven of Pastor Belleman.
I attended Goss Memorial for 5 years and his teachings and sermons blessed me.
i was brought up in the Catholic Faith. He came during visiting hours to see my dear Mother when God took her home.
I will always remember his kindness to me. A great man of God.

Dear Ben,

Just learned of your father's home going and wanted to send condolences and assure you of our prayers during this time. Your father's legacy can't be quantified this side of eternity, but I know his ministry to so many (over so many years) had an enormous impact. CVCA remains grateful for the service to (and support for) the school which your parents faithfully provided throughout the years. Roger Taylor and your friends at CVCA
