Gloria May Bogart Foesch
July 21, 1945 - September 2, 2021
"Things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands."
Psalms 78:3-7 NIV
