We had several anniversaries this past week.

Jim and June Hardin and Gilbert and Lydia Alderete both were married the same day and year.  That was June 2, 1978.  Happy Forty-First to both couples!

Bob and Ann Roland celebrated their Sixty-First on Thursday, June 6!!  That was 1958!

Larry Smith was the birthday boy last Sunday, June 2nd.  He did not reveal which one!  Happy Birthday, Larry!


We appreciate Jim Delony leading the singing last Sunday.  It is always good to have him and Pat with us.

Ann Roland has recently shown improvement this past week. She transitioned from a walker to a cane!   Go, Ann!

With sadness we report that Teresa Fleury will be moving to Amarillo the last of July.  She has a position as a librarian at an elementary school there.  Teresa and Chris will be only minutes away from her folks.  Amarillo is Teresa’s old “stomping grounds”, as she grew up there.  Remember, “Galveston, oh Galveston” tops “Amarillo By Morning”!!

Allen recently spoke to Zenobia Verner, who is doing well at 92 years of age!  She taught at Galveston College and was an important person encouraging the college to work for Academic Excellence, leading to Accreditation for G.C.

 Special Thanks!

We want to give special thanks to the Ladies’ Class for arranging, organizing and serving the luncheon following the Wagner funeral.

 Remembering Sonny!

Our own James “Sonny” Wagner passed away Monday morning, June 3rd.  The funeral was held here at the Broadway building Friday, June 7th.

We want to share this tribute with you.

The following article was read at the funeral service for Sonny on Friday, June 7.

It was written by Joe Barnett.

Let us not give up meeting together…

but let us encourage one another.  Hebrews 10:25

 There’s a hole in our church family, on row five; the space where Sonny sat for twenty-five years.  Sonny left our church house for his Father’s house on June 3rd.

As a young man, Sonny was a stock car racer; then for thirty-nine years, a Pressman for the Houston Chronicle.  Those two high decibel jobs assaulted Sonny’s ears and left him stone deaf.

Even though he couldn’t hear a thing that was being said, he never missed filling his spot on row five.  He showed up to honor his Father and encourage his church family.

Sonny didn’t talk much, because he couldn’t decipher the other side of the conversation.  But I never saw him without a smile on his face.

That’s how I’ll remember him:  happy and faithful.  I’d like to be remembered that way, wouldn’t you?

Difficulties either diminish you or enlarge you.
