Newsletter: It is with much sorrow that I have to tell you that our beloved friend of so many years has gone home to the Lord. She will ever be remembered as a Holy, Godly person who never met an anyone she didn’t love, mentor, teach, pastor and support. I was no exception. She picked me up at my first Life in the Spirit Seminar (LIS) at St Henry’s in Gresham, OR, in 1989. She was part of the Core Team putting this LIS on and not even really knowing me, charged me with heading up the music ministry for an upcoming Healing Mass. I had been in choirs most of my life but never as a cantor. She absolutely assured me that I could do it. That was how it began.
