Dear Carol, Jeffrey, Grace & families, I was your minister at Allenport UM Church in 1966 - 68. I always remember Edith & Grace as two of my most faithful members. I am saddened to read of Edith's death. She was a wonderful person and I am blest to have known her. I remember baptizing Lisa Ghenne and Ralph Todd. God bless and comfort you all. Sincerely, David Griffith
