Happy holidays from yours truly and the Wesley Smith Chapel community!
I’d like to say congratulations and a happy retirement to brother James Stringfield. May God grant you and your sweet, adorable wife rest, traveling and doing what you would love to do. I know my friend Doris is rejoicing in heaven and praying that you will enjoy the rest of life and live. I love you all so much. Trust me, my friend Doris Bryant, whom I miss so much, would have called me to give me all of the details. I hope you had a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
