Bumping this old topic once more. I thought David's old roommate & others who remember the Stalneckers & Tysons from "back in the day" might appreciate the update.

In the summer of 2014 David & Carol Tyson realized a long-time dream when they moved from California to Spring Hill, TN (in David's words, "God's country") along with two of their daughters. David had been in poor health for over 15 years and spent about half his time in TN in Vanderbilt Hospital after the move. He remained upbeat and optimistic, but his earthly body finally gave out on December 8, 2015. A "Homegoing Service" was held near Nashville on December 14, 2015. This was the entire service, filmed & edited by daughter, Traci.

Here are some clips (please excuse the quality) from David's "last concert on earth," an informal jam session on May 1, 2015 with Bette Stalnecker Gibson & Carol. David said he had not played the piano in 17 years! You never would have known it. It came back to him just like it was yesterday.

Here are two (closer) clips of Lesli, Julie, and Carol singing at David's "Homegoing Service."

And finally, Bette Stalnecker Gibson, accompanied by Carol Tyson, sings "We'll Talk it Over":

Bette turns 89 this week and is still going strong. She posts weekly (public) videos on Facebook:

Invite her to Baptist Life! We could use young blood, and women! (;-))

But if you do, give me a heads-up as to her username (Bette Stalnecker would be ideal) so I don't accidentally expel her along with the Яussians.

Ed: Hauro, are you sure those Russians are not some of the Russians Choir and Baptist dignitaries who Took Part in the ABC International Ministries anniversary celebration for which we brought all the missionaries home to participate, a few years ago? 2014 I believe. They had a large place in the events closing program at Green Lake.

There are certainly plenty of Baptists in Russia (and some of the other former SSRs, but I am stepping out in faith and assuming that they don't have names like EZ Payday Loans or Charlesbfp, nor do they tend to use Dutch ISPs.

I can tell her, but she primarily sticks with Facebook. She retained the Stalnecker name when she remarried and just added "Gibson" (with no hyphen). Today she often just goes by "Bette Gibson" which took me a long time to get used to. Hey, I'm a woman, if it matters. Not exactly "young blood" unless "young" is a relative term. :D I bet many of you are at least old enough to remember Roy Rogers & Dale Evans. Unfortunately, it seems nobody under about 50 today has, so I need to come up with a new example when I'm referred to as "he."

This is a clip from her 2003 wedding to Jim Gibson. Adrian Rogers officiated. Several people mentioned Rick (Ric) and Loren/"Chip" (Lauren). They "gave her away" here. Ric is the taller of the two (on Bette's left).

P.S. Can someone provide a link to the "Big Hair for Jesus" topic listed in the first comment? I was never able to find it.
