    I am blessed to have known Mrs. Griffey for more than 60 years, and was privileged to spend many weekends at their home as a close friend of her daughter, whom most of us know as Crickett. She was a gracious hostess who kept us in line as much as anyone could! She and her late husband helped to shape the lives of more young people than I can count, and I’ll be forever thankful to God that He allowed me to a part of their ministry. My condolences to her lovely family, and many prayers for peace, comfort, and strength that only He can give. Crickett, I love you like a sister, and wish I could be there with you all.
