I recall meeting Mrs. Devos as a newly chosen student of the Devos Leadership Initiative. As she spoke to us for the first time, I wondered what would she say to encourage mostly people that had a heart for serving the inner city poor. As she began to speak and welcome us, we were all greeted with her big beautiful smile. On that day many years ago, she simply encouraged all of us to Serve others with the kind of Love and Passion that will change the world and make it better....I still remember those words and how passionately she spoke....Her words of wisdom will forever be written in my heart as I seek to live them out daily.
God was good to the world by giving us such a woman as Helen DeVos.....Sadly Missed, Rev Kelvin Bowen Christ Fellowship Church of Memphis
