Recent Passing of Don Smith

It seems that Don has always been a part of St. Giles and, even after having moved away, both Don and Ann are St. Giles family members forever.  Our hearts and prayers go out to Ann and all of their family and friends as we wish them God’s peace.

Recent Passing of Jack Simpson

Always by Ev’s side and quick with a witty comment and a smile, Jack was a well-known and loved member of our St. Giles family.  We will miss that twinkle in his eye – the stars are likely shining a little brighter now.  Each memory of him is sure to spark joy.  May the peace of Christ be with Ev and all of Jack’s family and friends.

Recent Passing of Doug Levitt

Dearest Doug, God be with you.  Your car was the first in the parking lot Sunday mornings.  Your dedication to scripture and quiet presence were surely glorifying to God and certainly faith-strengthening for your St. Giles family.  May the Lord’s face shine on you.
