    I am the grand daughter of John and Cora Sampson. So many wonderful memories of my grandparents. I thank God for the legacy they left behind. I am instilling that same legacy in my kids and grandkids. I am proud to be a part of a family with such a heritage. Many heartfelt memories as I think of the journey. I am happy to still be on this journey with Him as my shepherd!

    I do have some of my grandmother. However, I knew very little about her mom and dad but have always been interested in learning more about my family heritage. I am at work and just stumble somehow across this today as I was searching my home church history. I find this all interesting. Now that we have connected some what it will be awesome to keep the connection. Dee
