Special note:  Many of you may remember Ottawa's Bill Croy who served as a Methodist pastor in the Lima and Columbus area.  Rev. Croy battled ALS with grace and determination.  His funeral service will be live-streamed at Ottawa's Trinity United Methodist Church on Tuesday, February 3, at 11 am.  A 30-minute slide show and visitation will precede the service.  Bill's mother Mary will be attending at Trinity.  You are all welcome to attend.
