    Dear Ted and girls. I am so sorry for the loss of Joan. The memories of the Christ Lutheran family are from happy times that will always be with me! It’s hard to see all of the core members are now gone. I pray that God comforts you in this sad time for your family, but rejoice that she is whole and healthy again with Him and that He rewards and appreciated her contribution to Christ Lutheran Church. With much Love, Wendy Moll DeFrancesca
