We were saddened to read of your loss, Sylvia. It doesn’t seem like you have been gone from Greene County that long, but I remember when you came to Christ Lutheran. It was good to see “home folk”and to renew our childhood connections. Although we loss track, it was good to catch up in Pomeroy and now we see that is where Loren’s resting place will be. Perhaps we will run into you there! God’s peace be with you and your family during these difficult days. Jan
