  1. Dave, we are saddened by your aunt\’s death. Many of us from Church Street School remember her fondly. We will remember her in our prayers. I\’m sorry that we will not be at the service, but Bernie is very ill. Ron and Bernie Hekeler

  2. Dear Mr.& Mrs. D. Sogan: I met Mary many years ago when I taught second grade at M. L. Keefe. She was a wonderful influence. I married and had a family, leaving teaching. Occasionally, we\’d meet in the neighborhood and chat. Mary knew my children from early on. Later, we met up at Whitney Christian Life and realized we were sisters in Christ. We shared so many spiritual moments,I can\’t begin to tell you. She was my Spiritual Mother, sister, and dearest friend. Her positive attitude and Biblical perspective always edified me. I shall miss her dearly; however, I know I\’ll meet her again in the resurrection. My life has been deeply touched and so enriched having had Mary Sogan in it. I have been so blessed; I loved her muchly. .Lovingly in God\’s Hands..
