    So sorry to hear of Margarets passing. We served on many committees on the boards of Eastern North Dakota Synod. She left me with many words of wisdom and guided me through a good number of meetings. Her faith and ideals have been important in my decision making skills through the years.Thankful for all the work she did in the church.

    Saw your mom in December, she was so sharp and just as kind and thoughtful as I remembered her growing up at Cummings. Thoughts and prayers are with you all…
