Bishop Randell Drake took this photo at the close of the memorial service for Dr. Synan. It is of all the speakers standing with Carol Lee Synan. From left to right: Doug Beacham, Dr. Billy Wilson, Mary Synan Clark, Dr. Connie Dawson, Carol Lee Synan, Dr. Kathaleen Reid-Martinez, Dr. Harold Hunter, Dr. Daniel Isgrigg, Dr. Wonsuk Ma, and Pastor Rodney Fouts.
There were other IPHC connected people present at Christ’s Chapel for the service, including Mrs. Susan Beacham, Bishop Talmadge Gardner, Dr. Tom Murray, Dr. Garnet Pike, Dr. Jay Pike, Rev. Matt Bennett, Dr. Johnny Swails, Dr. and Mrs. Harold Dalton, Dr. Adrian Hinkle, Mrs. Brenda Phillips, Rev. Jesse Heath, and the aforementioned Bishop Randell Drake. There were certainly others but these are the ones that I either directly saw or spoke to.
All the speakers did an excellent job commemorating Dr. Synan’s life and giving glory to God. Of particular note were the personal remarks by the Synan’s oldest child, Mary Synan Clark. She effectively communicated the humor, warmth, and love of this special family.
Blessings to you,
