Gina and family, know that we love you very much . We are so glad we were able to spend time with you in July. Eric was so proud of his Church as he gave us a tour. God gained an angel for sure. Love Uncle Harry and Aunt Connie.

I met Pastor Winslow just over a month ago at the wedding of his son and my close friend, Nathaniel. From interacting with him I knew that he was a very wise man and a very godly man. Also, He, just like his son, would surprise me with a very humorous remark out of the blue! From his god-honoring charge to Nathaniel and Audrey I saw his love and care for them and for his family. His legacy is definitely seen in his son in my opinion and I have no doubt that it will be carried on. It is not death to die!

Bro Winslow was such a blessing to my husband and I 13 years ago when we adopted a baby with heart issues. She had to be transported to St Louis Childrens for open heart surgery. He came to visit several times to support us and pray with us. God gave him a special gift to encourage and comfort through difficult times. This February a year ago he was there for us again we had a baby girl with holes in her heart and had to have open heart surgery. He came and sat with us again. Praying and encouraging while we waited for her to come out of surgery. We know we will see him again but our hearts are heavy with sorrow to the loss of a very special man. We pray the Lord will give his family peace and comfort through this time. Love and prayers, The Billingsley Family
