Dear Ken,
Mike and I are so sorry for the loss loss of dear Linda. It is difficult to imagine an Ecclesiatical Arts Committee meeting at church without her presence. She was such a talented seamstress and creative in so many other crafts. We also remember the many dinners you and Linda prepared for our congregation with the Spamer’s. May it help to know how much our church family cares. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We miss seeing you.
Mike and Janet Cutsail.
