That song thank you for being a friend seems to come to mind. You will be missed by your St. Andrew's friends for your great voice , efficient office skills, crafting and flowers. My mom and aunt spoke highly of you. What a reunion there will be in heaven. My memory is a big welcome to the church office and you explaining the buttoned phone and how you typed the bulletins about 1976 !
