I have been fortunate to have known Moonie for a long time. We became friends and shared many happy times singing the old hymns, reading Bible verses, having communion together and sharing life stories.
She always told me how much she loved me and encouraged me to continue to write songs inspired by the Holy Spirit. I copied the lyrics for her to read and she tried to sing along.
Moonie was an inspiration. I will always remember her and give thanks for the time we had together.
