Condolences Left For Edith Hackmann

My condolences to the family. I have requested prayer to be said for Edith and her family at http://www.fspa.org/prayer-request.php?sent=1
My wife and I visited this chapel a couple of years back and was quite moved that they have been praying 24/7 for over 150 years. Although I didn’t know Edith I might know her son Richard. Please excuse me for reaching out to see if Richard is the same gentleman I got to know in the military. I hope Rich and the entire famuly find a few lost memories of Edith over the next few day. Again my apology. Mark Jasper
