    Your Mom was one of my dearest friends from Redeemer. I have many fond memories of her. Best cook and hardest worker in the church’s kitchen. I loved her.

  2. Sylvia was my very best friend. We met in 1981 when we were teaching preschool at Redeemer Lutheran Church. We became very good friends, always there for each other, through good times and not so good times. We had our wonderful tea times when we would drink tea and talk. We traded books, mostly romances and mysteries (though sometimes a classic or two!). I remember Sylvia’s homemade candies at Christmas. They were so good! She had an amazing knowledge of cooking and was so good at organizing dinners at the church. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and we enjoyed many a laugh. I will miss her terribly, but as they say–our loss is Heaven’s gain.

  3. To Mrs Nightingale’s Family Please know how sorry we feel for your loss. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Again, we are very sorry.

  4. Hello,My sympathies go out to the family and friends in the loss of your loved one. May the words found at Revelation 21:4 bring you comfort during this difficult time. “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” May you find peace in the days ahead.
