    I am eternally grateful  to the impact Mother York had on my life and introduction into the Corps.

    May God be with the family and the COGIC Adjutant Corps as one of our Soldiers has laid down her sword in preparation for her reward.

    Heartfelt sympathy to the family of Mother York.  I served with her in the Adjutancy Corps for several years during the lifetime of our late Adjutant General Bishop H. Jenkins Bell, as well as the late Adjutant General Thoroughgood.  I enjoyed good fellowship with her, and I'm sure she is truly missed by all.  May God comfort your hearts at this time.
