This Week at Old South Haven Church

With Sadness we bring you notice of the death of Dr. Craig Tenke this past Tuesday. Craig and his sister Carol  Ann Trask have been regular worshipers at Old South Haven. Craig was a Research Scientist n the Department of Psychiatry of Columbia University. I first met Craig twenty-five years ago as a member with me of the Presbytery's chapter of our denomination's  "Honoring All Voices". This organization worked for the full inclusions of GLBT individuals in our denomination. Craig was an Elder and had served on the Session of the Presbyterian Church of Center Moriches. A memorial service will be held  with the  date not yet set. To Craig's wife Jo Ann, his family, and his sister Carol Ann we extend our deepest sympathy.
