Nancy (Chriestenson) and Dale Sutter.
We just saw that Gail had passed away. Our condolences to the family.
Nancy and I attended Evangelistic Chapel in White Center in the early 1970’s while I attended Northwest College of the A/G. Nancy and her parents (Chris and Loretta) were longtime friends of the Bailey’s who founded the church there. They moved to Seattle to help build the church building. We appreciated knowing the Ott’s and their ministry.
