    I am so sorry for your loss and will keep your family in my prayers. Mrs. Grass was a wonderful person and Pastor’s wife. At Poroporone in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s, she was our Young Adult Sunday School Teacher. We had so much fun in her class; she was a wonderful teacher. I will always remember that about her. May you find comfort in God’s love during this time.

    Keeping the family in thought and prayer during this sad time.
    Just remember this is a time for gathering all the best of a good life into pages of memory, to be held in the heart forever and praying that memories will bring the family peace and comfort.
    With deepest sympathy,
