    Rest in Peace my friend. Sure going to miss you and all you did for the Flandreau 1st PC. Thanks for all you have done and how you always kept me in your prayers since I became the Stated Clerk of Dakota Presbytery. To her children, grand children and the rest of the family…you surely had a blessed person in your life living and proclaiming the word of God. I’m glad I was able to call her my friend. God’s blessings…and a special prayer for Fannie.
