Dear Barbara & Charles, stretch your memories back to the 60’s, we remember your family fondly during those early days at Va Beach Comm Chapel. Your dad was our bible teacher and both of your parents our dear friends. Charles, you were in my Sunday school class for a number of years, I remember you as a little bashful, blond boy. May the Lord bless you and give you peace knowing that He has prepared a place for your dad.

We moved to Gloucester county 12 years ago and love it here. If you every want to contact us we are in the Gloucester phone book, or contact us by email.

With fond memories, Ozzie & Marilyn Pretzman

Dear Family,

I had the joy of knowing your parents at Ocean View Baptist Church and more recently at Bayside.

They were one of first families I remember in Lake Shores when we moved there in 1969. Your Dad did several electrical fixes for my Mom and Dad. Your Mom and I loved to compare the real estate weekly notices about homes in Lake Shores on Sunday before the 8:30 service started. They were a wonderful couple and great neighbors to have. I hope they that are having a joyous reunion with my parents in the heavenly place I know they are. Although, you have suffered a great lost in the pass six months, heaven has gained a great couple. Again, my prayers and thoughts are with you’all during this especially difficult time. Sharon Lawrence
