What a Class Act ~ a world-class gentleman, wonderful, kind-hearted spokesman and of course a brilliant pastor. I was introduced to 'Pastor Ihno' back in the mid-1970s. Pastor Janssen helped my family deal with marriage and mourning loved ones and was just plain helpful in so many ways. Over the years I had the pleasure of meeting his lovely beautiful wife, his warm-hearted and bright daughter and his really cool son Jonathan (who helped the family Pommon family while working for Tower Market.
Speaking of Tower Market, I remember one time while working in my Dad's liquor wine shop I bought a little extra world famous yet unknown Peanut Liquor. My father was a concerned with me that I would be "stuck" with this "specialty item" and that it would sit on the shelf forever.
Pastor Ihno used to stop by where I worked to pick up a few items always having an electric smile and great chuckle for all those that knew him in the store.
Ihno could tell I was in the dog-house with Pops over this 'special purchase' that I made.
Out of his shear kindness each time he visited the store he buy a few bottles (subsequently giving them away as gifts) He truly helped me get me off the hook with my Dad (who was my boss). Man . . what a guy!
Pastor Janssen will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Everyone that knew him loved his helpful advice.
I know how much his beautiful wife will miss him, but she can take comfort and strength from the wonderful family she and Pastor had together. I know their love will get her through this difficult time.
May God bless his soul and his wonderful family during this time and always.
