In the Eastern Star we comment another link in our Golden Chain has been broken with the passing of our Sister, Myrtle. Please know she is in a place not made with hands, but eternal in the heavens. And as a Lutheran Christian, we know how strong faith can carry all of us through the most difficult of times. May your faith be strong to carry you and your family through this time. I'm glad we talked at the bazaar in November.
