Becky, your mom was always so friendly to me at Lutheran Women's Missionary Society conventions. I enjoyed talking to her about her time on the Board of Directors with Winnie Laabs. She will be missed by many of her sisters-in-Christ but we look forward to that heavenly reunion. May God grant you peace.
