    Pat, I was saddened to see that your Mother has passed. You and your family have our sincere and heartfelt sympathy. For many years she was a regular on the parking lot at Immanuel waiting to pick up kids and grandkids from school. She always assisted us at the Savings and Loan with our saving accounts, which were pretty pitiful but we always got one of those dumdum lollipops. She was a treasure to her family and to the church and all of us who knew her, either briefly and over the years. Our thoughts are with your family, Kent and Kathie Smith.

    Norm and Ruth were special in so many ways. From the moment Judy and I came to Our Savior they provided the kind of spark that made ministry a joy. They will always be remembered with a smile. Pastor Ed

    candle 2My sincere condolences to this great family.
    I remember going to RuthAnn and Normans home as a small child, and later had the opportunity to actually work with Norman at McDonnell Douglas.
    Ruth Ann was a good friend to my mother and I’m sure will be missed by many.
    I’m sure heaven is a much better place with Ruth Ann as their new resident.
    May God bless your family at this was event.

    candle 1My sincerest condolences to all of the family. Mrs. Pickering treated me like one of her kids when I was a child and came over to play with my best friend, Norma. She was just the sweetest lady. And now she’s happy in heaven. May God grant each of you His comfort and His peace.
