Essie Halls passed away on Monday. She and her husband Art coordinated the St. Joseph Prayer Ministry retreat for many years which was held in Fort Warden. I was the retreat master in the a couple of years and always enjoyed the event and their great company. She will be terribly missed. There will be a funeral in Spokane and one in Sequim at a later date which I will post. Please keep the family in your prayers. Thank you!
