Personal Notes:
Sandra and I were members of Bethany Church from August, 1999 until we moved in May, 2021. We always enjoy returning to our church home of nearly 22 years and seeing the dear people with whom we have a loving relationship.

Here are some of those with whom we enjoyed a fellowship time:

With Shelby Lawrence, one of our dear and precious “Church Granddaughters”
With Ramsey Collier, another of our precious “Church Grandchildren”.
Sis. Ramsey is graduating from high school, and plans to attend Georgia Tech.
With Bryan Camp, a deacon at Bethany Church.
Bro. Bryan and I are long-time friends and brothers, and have enjoyed several hikes together in the Lord’s Creation.

With Sis. Charlyne Harrison. She and her husband Dr. John were our
“Georgia Parents”, and we had many good and loving times of fellowship
together.
