In 1967 I began building a relationship with Sis. Krym and her family and will always refer to them as a mission driven family. I firmly believe that was their passion. My son and daughter were among the many children who were privileged to be taught by Sis Krym. As the head of the children’s department for many years she was passionate about bringing bible stories to life and often created gadgets for small hands to enjoy. Sister Krym was also our organist and pianist, she would complete her duties in the children’s division and would hurry into the sanctuary to be a central part of the Divine Worship Service. I loved her dearly. My prayers and thoughts are with her children and grandchildren. She will be deeply missed.
