From: Chris and Naomi Diamond
Relation: Wed. evening Scripture Study

Hedy was a good friend and an enthusiastic part of St. Peter’s Wed. evening Scripture Study group while she was able to attend. We enjoyed her bright-eyed characteristic ability to help those in need. She was very hospitable and she delighted in her gardening. We missed her participation when her pain made it impossible for her to continue taking part. Her many good qualities have remained in our minds and hearts.
