First, my sincerest sympathy to Edna's family. I have only known Edna for about 2 years, as a neighbor down the hall in Seabrook Village. We both always enjoyed seeing each other, and I will miss meeting her in the hall or on the elevator. Both Edna and I chuckled a few times at her reaction to my church affiliation. When she saw my name, she said, "that's German, isn't it?" I said yes. Edna, always willing to ask a question without hesitation then asked me, "do you go to church?" I said yes, I do. "Where do you go?" was her next question. I told her I was a member of Luther Memorial Church in Tinton Falls. Her reaction was a classic: "Oh, I'm a Lutheran, too, but not THAT kind of Lutheran." Only other Lutherans would enjoy her comment, which, of course, reflected on the fact that I am a Missouri Synod Lutheran (the "conservative" Lutherans), and she has been a lifelong member of a different Lutheran synod (a bit less conservative). I'm sure her pastor would enjoy hearing her comment to me. Again, I will miss seeing her. She was a neighbor who openly said hello to me when I moved to Seabrook and down the hall from her, just 2 years ago.
