Our sympathies to Michael Burke and families,
When I was a church secretary at Memorial UCC, Easton, Pastor Sandrock was the stated supply pastor. Actually, I was glad when his supply was over---I couldn't keep up with him. He was like the Energizer Bunny. He simply did not go the extra mile --with parishioners or strangers---he went 3-4 miles. He hardly ever gave me a chance to answer the phone. He picked up strangers or found ways to help them, whether clothes or a ride somewhere. I used to call in angels to protect him that one time I think I heard an angel say, "Not Curt, again!" Harry knew the Sandrocks as kids, as Hollywood was near Hazleton. We had lots of laughs together. I'm so glad he passed through my life.
