Robin and Kurt, you have our deepest condolences on the passing of your dear mother. Having watched her physical struggles these past few years, we were always amazed by her ability to bounce back from adversity. Until reading her obituary, I had forgotten how much she did for our community. Your mother was all about service to others, which leaves a legacy for your families and all of us to follow. We pray that you are blessed with only happy memories of your years together.

I have so many fond memories of my years of piano lessons with Joann. She also taught me how to play the organ at Good Shepard when my father was the minister there. She was a lovely person.
