  • ANOTHER SAINT GONE HOME.


    I APOLOGIZE FOR ALL THE BELOW PHOTOS-NOT CLEAR ENOUGH.
    I CAN DO BETTER

    BIDDING FAREWELL TO ANOTHER SAINT OF GOD.

    I HAVE OFTEN WONDERED WHY MICKY HANDLES THINGS THE WAY HE DOES
    OR WHY HE SPEAKS WITH A SOFTER TONE.
    AFTER YESTERDAY SERVICE I UNDERSTOOD A BIT BETTER.
    I LIKE THE INQUIRING LOOK ON CAROLS FACE

    SORRY A BIT BLURRY BUT THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN VERY OFTEN
    ACCORDING TO MICKEY.

    MILLARD BENNER.
    A MAN I HAVE HAD HIGH REGARDS FOR MANY YEARS.
    YESTERDAY AT THE GRAVE SITE FOR DREXEL, I WAS STANDING BESIDE THIS GENTLEMAN AND THE CLOSING SONG WAS—(LIFT YOUR GLAD VOICES) I SO ENJOYED SINGER TENOR AS I LISTENED TO MALLARDS STRONG BASS VOICE AT 85 YEARS OLD STILL SOUNDING GOOD
    MILLARD IS MICKEYS FATHER IN LAW.

     

    DREXEL CHAFFINCH
    BODY WAS LAID TO REST YESTERDAY SOME OF THE STORIES HIS CHILDREN TOLD WERE
    SURE A SURPRISE TO ME.
    LIKE THE WAY DREXEL CURED MICKEY FROM SWEARING,
    OR WHY HIS SON MICKEY HAD NO DESIRE FOR BOOZE. ?????

    MILLARD BENNER 
    A FEW MEMORIES OF HIS FRIENDSHIP AND  ACCOUNTS OF WORKING WITH DREXEL.
    MATT DEPUTY–PASTOR WITH PASTOR LOWELL

          

    LOWELL A FRIEND OF THE CHAFFINCH FOR MANY YEARS.

    DOREEN–DEBBIE–MICKEY–BARRY.
    DREXEL & ESTHER CHILDREN

      

    FAITH ZENCAK
    STILL SINGING WITH THAT CLEAR SWEET SOUND OF YOUTH.

     

    I’M SO ASHAMED OF THIS PHOTO–BUT I WANTED TO AT LEAST SHOW MICKEY & CAROL’S OLDEST DAUGHTER–MICHAL- BETH CENTER (R) OF MATTHEW.
    NEED HELP WITH THE OTHERS.

    MICKEY VISITING WITH  STEVE BENNER AND PERHAPS HIS WIFE–I DON’T KNOW
    =========================================================================
    ================================================================
    ======================================================


    MORNING OF THE FUNERAL I LOOKED OUT MY BACK WINDOWS TOWARD THE POND AND HERE CAME A FLOCK OF WILD TURKEYS.
    I REMEMBER YEARS AGO THAT–BOB ZEHR–SIM SHARP-IVAN MAST- SHUCKS I FORGET NOW –ANYWAY THEY NEEDED TO GO TO WEST VIRGINIA OR SOME OTHER STATE TO GET TURKEYS NOW HERE THEY ARE IN MY BACK YARD GOING DOWN TO POND TO GET WATER.
    HOWEVER THIS TIME A BIG OLD BUZZARD KEPT THEM FROM THE WATER.
    LOOK AGAIN AND YOU WILL SEE THE BUZZARD SITTING ON THE SMALL ROCKS.
