  1. Very warm and worshipful experience ! Music was terrific.

  2. Really liked my visit very peaceful!

  3. To anybody who would remember us, Rev. Kenneth H okkerse used to be the priest there in the seventies. anybody who may remember us Grace okkerse passed away July 8 of this year. she passed away from terminal cancer at the age of 86.

  4. Mr. Bridgford, I have thought fondly of you for most of my life and want you to know what a profound effect you have had in my life. I was your student at Willard Jr. High the first year you taught. Your enthusiasm, warmth, devilishness and sense of humor, and your frequent going off the subject was a source of delight for your students. You inspired me.

    I retired in 2008 after 33 years as a Special Educator, 5 years in Norfolk and the rest of my career in Hampton where I live. I married a teacher and have one son.

    Thank you so very much for being my teacher, an inspiration and for your many kindnesses to me.

    Fondly, Donna Jones Simpson

      Thank you so much for your very kind words. They are so much appreciated. I had lunch the other day with Don Beamon and we shared memories of our days at Willard. Those were good times for me, and I so well remember all of you. I think you taught me more than I taught you. And I am so happy that you went into teaching and had a successful career – especially with special needs kids. And you even married a teacher. That was a brave act.
      It’s wonderful to hear from you, and thank you again for writing.

  5. Richard: Julia+ has given her permission for me to join the Ephiphany community for the 11 a.m. service on Thanksgiving Day and the dinner following.
    I will be bringing Sally Lunn muffins which I have baked. So looking forward to being with you all.
