What an amazing life Oma led. We’re lucky to have known her, and imagine she’s settling into Heaven nicely. Peace and love.

Tony, Grace and the Horvatin family,

I am saddened to hear about the death of your mom. Whenever I saw her at church, she greeted me warmly and asked how I was doing. She had a genuine interest in the people she encountered. I will miss her presence there. My sincerest sympathies to all of you.

I remember the joy that pervaded Elfreide's being when she sang the old hymns during Hymn Sing. How Great Thou Art did something majestic, angelic and heavenly to her.

Missing you bunches Elfriede.

Pricely Francis, Chaplain
