What a blessing to have known Mrs. Folmar and to hear her beautiful organ playing at Ridgecrest Baptist Church. She was always such a loving, sweet, and articulate woman of God. She will be missed very much but now I am glad she is playing that organ again in Heaven and rejoicing with our Lord and Savior! Please call on me, or the Church if we can be of any assistance during this time of bereavement. We will keep you all in our hearts and prayers!
