My First Impression

Shared by Tamera Wilcoxson on March 9, 2011

I had the priviledge of being one (1) of a bus load of people to meet Mrs. Staten.  One week-end, several years ago  the youth of Linconia Tabernacle Christian Center  attended a Youth Convention that was held  in Virgina, I was one of the chaperones.  It  was after the evening service,  while we were all seated on the bus that was to return us to our hotel,  that Stella  brought her mom on board the bus  to introduce her.    The pride  in Stella's voice and the warm smile on her mom's face as she made the introduction is still fresh in my mind.  I could feel the "Southern Hospitality" as she greeted us all!  This was my first and lasting impression of Gladys Staten, a very sweet and warm lady!

Sleeping on the Couch

Shared by Margarita White on March 9, 2011

After Stella had Khrista, the family and friends planned a baby shower for her.  We really wanted to surprise Stella by bringing Mom Staten to Pennsylvania for the baby shower.  Frank, Stella's husband, contacted Mom Staten and made all of the arrangements.  Mom Staten stayed at my home until it was time for the shower.

While Mom Staten was sitting on the couch, she must have fallen asleep and my daughter, LaTisha must have been watching her!  When Mom Staten closed her eyes, LaTisha grabbed her feet and slowly placed them on the couch so she could be comfortable!  

Now, if you knew Mom Staten, those feet didn't stay up on the couch long!
