Passed Dec. 4th, 2002 (Paul), & Oct. 20, 1998 (Blanche)
Paul and Blanche were the first couple to begin attending Philly Deaf (formerly Deaf Christian Church). It was their contact with Pastor Larry Weed of Full Gospel Assembly of God church that was the catalyst for the beginning of this Deaf church ministry on November 5, 1995.
Paul was Deaf; Blanche was Hearing. They were faithful attendees to Deaf Christian Church throughout the years. They loved God, and often had an encouraging word to share about faith in Jesus.
If you asked Paul about his favorite song, it would almost always be..."It's bubbling, It's bubbling, It's bubbling in my soul..." ...and he would sign it for you if you asked.
