  3. We just learned today (April 8th) that Willa Dean had passed away. I prayed for her often and wished I could have gone to see her more. My sister, Dorothy, knew her in the church on Amarillo Blvd. Then I was glad when she started attending Pleasant Valley Assembly of God. Because of her great love for the Lord, we know where she is. She has already seen her loved ones, but most of all, she is with Jesus.

  4. Gary,
