When I gave my life to God in 1979 at the age of 20, Mary was my Sunday school teacher. She sent me a card in the mail to encourage me in my new walk with Christ. I still have that card 40 years later because it meant so much to me. Her home was a wonderful place to go for fellowship with fellow christians. I know her family is hurting right now because the loss is new, but we can all rejoice to know we will all see her again one day "when we all get to heaven". Mary is at home. Hallelujah.

I met Mary and George as an eighteen year old recruit at RTC, Orlando. I had called the Church of the Nazarene in Winter Park and the asked if I could attend the services on my Sunday liberty. He said a fine couple that lived just beyond the gate would bring me to church. That was April 1972 and began a long relationship with Mary and George. I was to find out that there were many Navy guys (her two sons included) that they had embraced over the years and entertained at their home on Truman Road. Dawn was still in school and also welcoming of my intrusion into their family.

Their home was a welcoming place, full of love, warmth and the love of Christ. After RTC, I came back to Orlando for school and stayed with them. They attended the Colonial Church of the Nazarene and it was just like being back at home, great youth groups and lively worship. Mary played the organ and could she play! Through the years at Trevecca Nazarene College, travelling with the PR groups I was at their home on multiple occasions no matter what church I was at in the area. I ate many meals around her table and she even let me play the organ (and I really couldn’t). She worked outside the home but was a woman that seemed never to run out of energy. She had one love that George and I would tease her about and distract her from watching ‘General Hospital’. We would remind her that her show was almost off and she would yell and us, then laugh. However, we did NOT do that every day! Even George knew when to cease and desist.

Mary exemplified and modelled what a Christian woman should be in spite of all the pranks that George played on her and her friends! She had a zest for life that was contagious. We would talk on the phone through these past years about many things; her concerns with her family and her concerns for mine. She also counted her blessings and remark that her life had been so blessed. She loved God and her family!!
