January/February/March 2021 Heritage Highlights


For all that don’t know, my wife of 52 years passed away suddenly on January 8th, 2021 at Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill, S.C.  The below obituary was prepared by Palmetto Funeral Home, Ft. Mill, S.C.  I miss her every day but am happy that she is out of all that pain and in her new glorious body in Heaven.

We had a very special “Going Home Celebration” at the Upper Room Chapel that was conducted by Bishop Ron Lambright and Rev. Russell James.

Chris was a writer and self-published author of “Listen to Me”, published in 2008. She was and still is a supporter of the PTL Ministry at Heritage USA and Branson, MO. She was a loving mother and wife and a fervent believer in Jesus Christ and His Word.
