My condolenses to the Stensberg family. May he rest in peace. He was a wonderful, caring man He married me in 1973, was there during the death of my parents, etc. A person could go on & on. The one thing that stood was the love of flowers he had with my mother He came very late one night to see a flower that bloomed once. That's dedication. God bless the family during this difficult time. He will be missed.

We loved Pastor Stensberg's Spirit-filled sermons and Bible classes! They were always so interesting, and we always learned something new! We also loved his appreciation for all kinds of beautiful worship music. When I joined St. Peter in the 1980s, Pastor helped me to feel at home. He knew I had been confirmed by his father-in-law, Pastor Lange, and he shared stories with me about my great grandmother, who lived near him when he was a boy and also loved to garden. Our sympathies to the entire family on the passing of this "good and faithful servant." He has "fought the good fight" and is now enjoying his "crown of righteousness." May you be comforted in knowing that this goodbye is only temporary until you embrace him again in the Lord's heavenly kingdom! May God hold you all in his arms until then!
