    May the Lord of the Church and the Lord of Resurrection be with the Fiedler-Reimer family at this time. Jeaniece and Don Reimer were an integral part of Lutheran Family and Children’s Services of Southeast Missouri, and thus a special part of our lives. Jeaniece’s nursing and caring ministry positively affected many people to the glory of God.
    With heartfelt care and love,
    Rev. Dale and Karen Trimberger
