Pastors Karla and Peter Coen-Tuff of United Lutheran Church hold an Easter card their eldest daughter, Rachel, made for them in 2011 when she was a college senior. On the cover is a photo of Rachel and her siblings, Matthew and Sarah, as very young children, dressed up for Easter. Inside is a hand-written Bible verse, John 11:25-26, and messages from each child. It has become a source of hope and comfort for them since Rachel's sudden death last summer at age 29.
