Condolences for LaVon Werner

To LaVon's family - please accept my sympathy for LaVon's passing. We at St. Paul Lutheran Church have missed her since she went to Virginia. We especially missed her when we put the monthly church newsletter together. She helped do that, and with her dry sense of humor would keep us laughing. What fun we had. She was always involved in church activities. When my husband passed away in 2004, she was the person in charge of the lunch after the service. It was a big job, but everything was excellent. I am going to a memorial donation to St. Paul's for LaVon. May she rest in peace. God's comfort and peace to her family. Judy Gruenberg
