Mr Van Hal was my Catechism teacher and stressed the importance of memorizing the Heidelberg catechism. So thankful for those memories and his instruction. "What is your only comfort in Life and in Death"? That I am not my own but belong body and soul, in life and in death to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ. Thank you for the lasting memory, Mr. Van Hal.
