Sending prayers and condolences. Ruth was a special lady that I learned so much from. I enjoyed our time together on Pastor John’s Search Committee and our many days in the St.Lucas kitchen. What a giver of her time and talents! She will be so very much missed!

Many fond memories of interacting with Mrs. Grattendick when I attended the fish dinners at the church with Karl and our mutual friends back when we were all single young men in the 1980's. Mrs. G was always a positive, uplifting influence on us, as would be expected from a fine Christian woman as she was. May she now enjoy the peace and comfort in the presence of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. My condolences to, and prayers are with, the family as you grieve her passing and celebrate her life. HalleluYah!
