 I have such great memories of spending much of my youth at the Gibson/Sutch home. Either hanging out and having sleepovers with Amy, or us neighborhood girls terrorizing Mark, or listening to Wendy share her wisdom as an older teenager, or being there with BPC youth group. Who remembers the car that The Gibson's let us paint for them?! We painted it all different colors and drew pictures all over it. They actually drove it around Gaithersburg! It certainly drew attention. My favorite experience that Mrs Gibson shared was her Pottery Wheel. She had the youth group over ALL THE TIME and one weekend, she taught us all how to make pottery. SO MUCH FUN! I appreciate all the culture Mrs Gibson brought to us and the appreciation of the Arts that she instilled in us. I will always hold such fond memories of her as my Sunday School teacher, my youth group leader, and as the Mom of my dear friends.

Aunt Ginger was the most gracious lady I have ever met. She was a true gift to her family and friends and I wanted to be just like her as I was growing up. She will be so very missed. Distance does not change the love and concern for family. Prayers for you all.

Ginger was the nicest lady. I remember sleepovers with Amy and church girlfriends and and nicely Ginger treated us all. She had also been a great support to my mom when my dad passed last year. God bless her. She's up in heaven helping my dad with organizing Bible studies I'm sure. Love to you all. Tanya
