I so appreciate that Mrs. Kern faithfully and quietly used her gift of organ playing for the glory of God; I especially appreciated the hymns she played during communion; she was never there to entertain us but to absolutely turn our eyes and heart towards our Savior Jesus Christ.
II Timothy 4:7-8 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."

Marty and I were sad to hear that your mom passed away. She was a sweet and kind lady. All five of her children have displayed over the years a wonderful example of respect and love to both their parents. A great role model to everyone to follow. May you have great memories and may you rest in knowing she is in the presents of her Lord and Savior.
