GREETINGS! For those who don’t know Donna, let me introduce you to my bride to be. She has been a close friend for 48 years and is also the widow of one of my best friends, Tim Gordon, with whom I first got into music back when we were in our teen years. We subsequently played in several bands together over the years. I’ve known Donna since her marriage to Tim in 1971 and sadly, I would later be called upon to preach at his funeral in 2010. Donna was also a very close friend of my late wife, Carolyn, even working for her for three years in a publishing company back in the late 1980’s. Moreover, they shared a mutual love of crafting and making candy, Yorkie dogs, as well as their involvement with Tim and myself with our music interests and performances. The Twins, Noah & Sam deeply love her and have become very involved with her. Donna also has a son who has autism, Jonathan, who resides with her and has been very close to me since his youth.
Life can be unpredictable and yet so amazing as Donna and I could not have anticipated God’s wonderful grace moving our long friendship into such a deep, loving relationship. In the word’s of +Bishop Dan,“You and Donna are meant to be together.” And so we find ourselves, at this stage of our lives, about to become husband and wife.
As we approach our wedding day, Donna & I would love to include our Church Family and Friends in our special day. However, as it would be impossible to remember and include everyone during the sending of invitations, we would like to make a simple and yet practical request that would assist us greatly.
If you would like to join with us on our holy and wonderful day, please respond by 01/10/20 using one of the following:
