Paul and Rita Scholl, married for 25 years

In Loving Memory of Paul Scholl

Paul was lost in a tragic hunting accident in November of 2014.
Though we have suffered from his premature death, his spirit remains with us.

"I would like to thank my pastors, Keith and Rachel Willard, of Real Life Christian Fellowship in Bemidji, Minnesota, and pastors Darrell and Marcia Todd of Word-N-Sound Ministries of Northern Minnesota. The love, help, prayer, and guidance they have given me, my children, and my family since the death of my husband, Paul, has made all the difference in our lives." - Rita
