    What a wonderful legacy Huebert and Melva left for family and friends in serving the Lord Jesus all these years. I can remember when I was just a little girl and uncle Gilbert [Melva's father] played the piano at Bethlehem, Huebert and Melva would bless us with their beautiful singing voices .When we are young we take so many things for granted, but our memories keep us in touch with the past, I praise God for the precious memories, and Huebert was still singing.
    I had such a good conservation with them at the family reunion.
    Melva’s father and my father [Roy] were brothers. Just wanted you to know our prayers are with you. Wanda and Faye.
