So sorry for your loss. From what little I Know of her, she was a well-respected and thoughtful Christian. I was so glad I got to visit with her on the phone a while back and I enjoyed sitting in the same pew with her when she was able to come to church. May your memories bring you comfort until you see her again. Prayers, Grace Steckman
