I´m so very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Kehres was my first grade teacher back in 1976. She took a medical leave part way through the year, I remember being sad when she left. Hopefully you all will be able to take comfort in the happy memories during this difficult time.

My deepest condolences and prayers to Edna's family and friends. When I was pastor of St. James from 2010-15 I got to know Edna. She was a dear soul. May God's peace and comfort be with all her family and friends.
