Deepest Gratitude—is extended to the OSLC congregation for their overwhelming willingness to jump in and serve where needed for the Bernice Hoffman funeral meal. The many hands that baked, set up and cleared away for this sacred task touched my heart as never before. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. —Krista Coyner

THANK YOU—Krista Coyner and your amazing team for making this occasion very special for the Hoffman family and all in attendance.
