I was deeply saddened to hear of Norma’ s passing.  So sorry I couldn’t come to the service.  We taught Sunday School together for many years and sat together in church.  She was truly a beautiful Lady and will be missed by Family and Friends.  Keeping all of you in my prayers.
Love, Cindy Kendig

Dear Lechner Family,
Shorty and I are so sorry for your loss.  Your Mother was a wonderful, kind, and loving woman.  She always had a smile on her face and a kind word for everyone.  Many children at Mt. Eden were fortunate to have her as a Sunday school teacher.  She will be greatly missed.
With deepest sympathy,
Emma Bland
