    On behalf of St. Andrew’s United church I wish to express our deepest sympathy on the loss of this little lady. I visited her once and took a prayer shawl for her but she was having a hard time communicating. I hope that she had a quiet and peaceful ending. May your memories be a treasure for you and your family.
    Blessings, Wilma Clark, Seniors Ministry
