    In the summer of 1978 a gentleman rang my doorbell and ask if I would like to buy some vegetables...I had no idea how that chance meeting would effect my life. Mr. Spivey was that man and over the next 30 years he and Mrs. Spivey took me into their lives and their hearts. The warmth and love were felt each time I saw them. They became like second parents to me. It was a relationship I cherished and still do to this day.

    Brother James has been a strong and wonderful influence in our lives. My husband grew up with James, telling his wonderful stories of hunting and his testimony of loving and serving our Lord. I have only known James for about 7 years and he has left a lasting impression in my life. I can still hear his voice as he told his stories and the old songs that he loved to sing. His loving way and his walk with Jesus will linger with us forever. He and Ruby are true soldiers of God.
