A beautiful woman with a strong Christian faith was an inspiration to the youth at the Trinity United Methodist church in Altoona. My sister and I were very privileged to have her as a Christian mentor in our lives. She will always have a special place in our hearts. We send our deepest sympathy to Mike and Cindy and their families.

Mr. & Mrs. Irvin were very instrumental in my faith journey. I will always treasure the great times we had in the youth group at Trinity UMC and especially trips to Circle K camp. Thank you for sharing both of your parents with all of us. I remember her smile and the gleam in her eyes.

My deepest sympathy for your family's loss. Ann Louise blessed me and so many others with her friendship. I have such fond memories of our times at Christian Women's Club, prayer breakfasts, bible studies and many lunches with Emily at Dave's Dream. She was a joy and a blessing to anyone who was fortunate enough to call her "my friend". Your family is in my prayers.
Much love,
Margie Burget
