Minnesota church mourns 15-year-old

We’re a close-knit family at The Christian Chronicle.
This week, we mourn with our colleague Tonda Stafford and her extended family in the sudden loss of Tonda’s 15-year-old nephew, Michael William Ries, a member of the Mankato Church of Christ in Minnesota.
Michael died of natural causes. He is survived by his parents, Barry and Leah; sister, Carissa; grandparents, Clyde and Glenda Schinnerer; aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. Read his full obituary.
