    I am sorry for the loss of your mom. I knew her at Westgate as Mrs Chapman. She was one of my Sunday school teacher. I also knew your sister Kim. You were a little girl when I knew your family. Your mom was very nice lady. She was very well respected and she loved the lord. She is with all of the people who went before her and all of the people she loved.

    Sorry to hear of Jo Ann’s passing. Just the mention of her name brings up a flood of grand memories from those 3 years we pastored WMBC. There was such a great sense of love and unity in those years.
    The fantastic truth is that love and unity still is there.
    I will never forget the Sunday reminders from her that the Cowboys kicked off at 12:00. I tried to oblige her!!
    With love and appreciation,
