Both are very active members in the life of our church. Valley Rim Director of Missions, Rev. Jerry Martin and his wife Bonnie, were present for the service. Also attending were Frank and Jan's children, Frank and Kim Forsyth of Desert Hills, Ariz.; Paul and Debby Conrad of Peoria, Ariz.; and Craig Forsyth, also of Peoria.
