    Fr. Krall was a kind and caring man to me.. He sold me is old Toyota in the 80’s with a set of tires for $300! He said because it had been under a tree outside the Holy Trinity in which birds ‘blessed’ it often, taking out the roof paint job I could pay him whatever I could afford. I used it for years as my commuter car to Portland State to received my Masters in Social Work. He encouraged my shy self to be a reader at mass. He asked me to be the reader at his uncle’s funeral mass, which he presided over. Years later in 2000 he referred me to a priest to officiate at my second marriage. I just loved the man and the priest.
