Brunson Dorchester County Sheriff Dept, Charleston, SC. There was no emotional connection at all. On December 19, 1985 I received a phone call that my mother was dying. She later died on December 20, 1985. At the time of her death the bitterness was still there.
January of 1986 I moved to Killeen, TX where I opened the Playmaker night club. Injuries from a serious car wreck caused me to close the club and move back to NY. In 1987 I was sentenced to a prison term for various money related criminal offenses. After years had passed, I remembered one day looking out of my cell window sad and very deep in thought. I vowed to myself that my life story would not end in a prison cell. I realized there was a deep void in my life. Something was missing. Approximately two and a half years before my release I began to seek out the word of God and talking with Him. I told God if He was real to come into my life and take the helm. I simply couldn’t do it any more on my own. While I never experienced any bright light or spectacular event…I felt an inner peace that I had never felt in my life. Upon my release I asked God to send me a woman that loves and serves Him. I told God the woman
He would send would be my wife. On May 17, 2013, He brought me to her. She was unaware that she was meeting her husband-to-be for the first time. I was detailing cars including hers that day. Was it love at first sight? No, it was much deeper than that. A knowing in a definitive conclusive way... This was my wife God had sent. We are married now and have been inseparable ever since. A love story most can only imagine. We are living it! My best friend, my soul mate, … my wife! Continued on page 48
