    To the Family of Vernedia Arringtion,
    Sister Arrington was a true woman of God. She was saved to the bone marrow. She lived a life that was the epitome of “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power unto salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). She loved the Lord and was not bashful about witnessing for Him. She was a woman of prayer and fasting. As one of her co-worker at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in the Radiology Department, she would often say, “I am running with the Lord.” Her co-workers knew these words meant that she was in a season of prayer and fasting. I call her an apostle, prophet, preacher, teacher, and a beautiful woman who continuously rejoiced in her relationship with the Lord. I am praying for your strength as you remember and celebrate her life. I praise the Lord for allowing me to know Sister Vernedia as a co-worker, friend, and sister of the faith. I will truly, truly miss her.
