    Debbie, I saw your father’s obituary in the newspaper this week, and soon as I saw the name, I just knew it had to be your father. It’s been a long time since we both worked together in the Church Music Department at BSSB, Nashville, and I’ve often wondered where you were located. So, I wanted you to know that I’m so sorry to hear of your father’s passing, and I can remember you telling me so many things about when he was in service, and you all travelled all around the country. Give me a call sometime and let’s catch up on things (615-352-0528). Lendon and I still live in West Nashville (Charlotte Park) for 40+ yrs. now and both retired, me in 93 and Lendon in 2005. Look us up on Facebook, too, at either Wallace Lampley and Janice Lampley. We seem to use Wallace’s Facebook more than mine. It’s not easy losing your father, as I lost my dad in 2002 and my mom in 2004, so I know how hard it can be. Take care, and hope you and your family are making it o.k.
