[Editor's Comment: Our beloved Stephanie, now with our blessed Lord in heaven, introduced me to Ben Watson when he played football for the Georgia Bulldogs. Stephen chose to become a member of Cornerstone Church of God in East Athens while maintaining her love and loyalty to the Pentecostal Holiness Church.
Stephanie never met a stranger without making him or her a friend. Ben Watson and his wife were friends of Stephanie. That's my connection with Ben Watson. Stephanie wanted me to meet Ben Watson, so Melvine went one Sunday to hear Pastor Scott Sheppard preach and to meet Ben. He is an outstanding Christian athlete and is a strong witness for Jesus Christ.]
