Maurice and Joan Glisson, though Hearing, have been terrific friends of Deaf Christian Church (now Philly Deaf) and the Deaf community. They lived together in the Brookhaven, Pa area, where Joan continues to reside. They became the parents of their grandson, Jesse Glisson, and sacrificed in many ways to serve his spiritual, educational, and social needs as he grew up in their home. They moved to locations where they felt they could best serve his educational needs, and, though later in years of life, they committed to taking sign language lessons so that they could communicate with Jesse in his cultural language. Maurice was also a friend of God and now walks in His presence. He is whole, and he is remembered as a good friend to us.
