June 20, 1028

I was baptized at St Matthew's in 1937. My parents lived 20 miles north of San Francisco and soon joined the newly established Trinity Lutheran (LCMS) in San Rafael.

The only other time I ever was at St Matthew's was a Christmas service in 1948 or 1949, when my father wanted to attend a German language service.

My paternal grandparents and uncles were members of St Matthew's for many years. I believe my Uncle Max was treasurer at St Matthew's at one time.
