Ellen and family - I was saddened to hear of David's passing. Please accept my deepest condolences. I have many, many fond memories of Immanuel Lutheran Church and School. I recall 1st and 2nd grade with Gloria and Confirmation class with Pastor. I was fortunate to have parents that saw the value in a parochial education. The good memories will last forever. God bless.
