One of The Post’s very own, Belinda Sanderson,  recently got to take a vacation, and of all places, she went to Hell. Hell, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands that is. “You could say we went to Hell and back,” said Belinda. Mike and Belinda Sanderson and their daughter, Autumn, of Cedar Springs and 17 of their family members went on a 7 day cruise to the Western Caribbean aboard the Carnival Splendor. They boarded the ship on February 21 at Port of Miami, Florida and sailed to  Cozumel, Mexico; Belize City, Belize;  Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Honduras; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; and returned to Port of Miami on February 28, 2016.

“We had two of our excursions canceled due to weather, so when we got to Grand Cayman (our last port) we took the island tour which included our visit to Hell,” Belinda explained.

Hell is a group of short, unique formations which is characterized by jagged, spongy pinnacles of black-covered limestone

Hell is a group of short, unique formations which is characterized by jagged, spongy pinnacles of black-covered limestone.  There are numerous versions of how Hell received its name, but they are generally variations on “a ministration exclaimed, ‘This is what Hell must look like.'”

It is also claimed that the name “Hell” is derived from the fact that if a pebble is thrown out into the formation, it echoes among the limestone peaks and valleys and sounds as if the pebble is falling all the way down to “Hell.”

Among the travelers were Bruce & Myrna (Myrna is not pictured) Chapman and their granddaugher Demetria Boring, of Sand Lake; Troy & Jenni Vermeulen and their children, Alliyah, Connor, Gavin, and Max, of Greenville; Rich Chapman, formerly of Cedar Springs, and his girlfriend Audrey; Scott & Tiffany Councell (formerly of Cedar Springs/Sand Lake) and their daughters, Brooklyn and Vanessa; and Scott’s parent’s Steve & Sandy Councell of Edwardsburg, MI (not pictured).

The Chapmans, of Sand Lake, and the Sandersons, of Cedar Springs, travelled to Branson, Missouri to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-43) September 27th through October 6th. For eight days we dwelled in our temporary booths (a rustic cabin in the woods) and attended church services each day. Branson was a beautiful place in the Ozark Mountains and had lots to do, so when we weren’t busy with church activities we got to enjoy some of the local attractions. A group of us went to Silver Dollar City, an amusement park, some of us visited the Titanic Museum, and others enjoyed an aquarium. A few were lucky enough to go to the light and sound theatre to see “Jonah.” There was so much to see and do, eight days wasn’t enough.

Happy 55th Emerald Anniversary


C-ANNIV-Chapman

Bruce & Myrna Chapman

September 3, 1960 to 2015

Love is patient and kind,

love is not jealous or boastful,

it is not arrogant or rude.

Love does not insist on its own way,

it is not irritable or resentful,

it does not rejoice at wrong,

but rejoices in the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

We hold him in our hearts instead of our arms, it has been 25 long years since Dean has left us. But with his wonderful son, loving family, great friends and a truly understanding/loving husband and daughters; some how we all made it through. God Bless you, I love you all!

We all miss and think of him so very often! He was a very special son, brother, husband, father, uncle and friend.
