Gertie Holle submitted a lovely and heart felt poem in memory of her husband, Norman Holle, who left this earth on February 10, 1985:
So many people loved you
and that makes us so proud,
You were that special person
who stood out from the crowd.
It was on the day you left us,
we were very much aware,
the mark you made on people
by the congregation there.
Our world was really shattered
but it made us realize
what a wonderful person you were Norm,
in so many peoples’ eyes.
–– With all our love, Your Family
