For those of you who know Rev. Stan Parkhouse
Ron Flett and Karin had a good meeting with Rev. Parkhouse’s daughter Ann, this past week and she reported that her dad was doing well and is in good spirits even through Covid. We were blessed to have had Rev. Stan Parkhouse as one of our VAM’s here at Trinity and Providence Churches, before he moved away to be closer to family. I believe he is now in his late 90’s!
