This is the First Presbyterian Church in Orange, TX. It is an extremely beautiful church which was founded by the Stark family who made their fortune in the lumber business. It is still recovering from damage during hurricane Rita but fortunately a foundation was established to cover the maintenance of the building.

This is where I went to Sunday school when I was a small child. I can still close my eyes and see the stain glass angels under that dome. Both my mother and I said after attending an aunt's funeral that the chapel itself has "shrunk" in our minds but it's beauty and peace remains.
