NORFOLK ThereAEs a bedrock, rain-or-shine quality about the early crowd that worships at Grace Episcopal Church. The same faces, in the same places, greet the Rev. Harold J. Cobb Jr. faithfully every Sunday as he leads the 8 a.m. service. |||| He knows, without looking, that Constance Coppage and Mildred Jordan will be in the second pew on his right u oThey never miss.o Perfectly coiffed, both wear wide-rimmed bifocals. |||| The two are sisters, elderly ladies sitting together in the pew as if born and raised there, though in fact they grew up Baptist. Coppage has been at Grace for 50 years or so, ever since she married an Episcopal fellow now deceased. |||| JordanAEs conversion is a bit more recent: She was confirmed into the Episcopal Church just this September at the age of 99. |||| It is an unusual time of life to switch denominations. oShe may be one of the oldest persons ever confirmed in the Episcopal Churcho nationwide, Cobb said. |||| But to Jordan, the miracle is that she is at Sunday services at all. For 17 years she had stopped attending church. For 17 years she had grieved her motherAEs death. For 17 years sheAEd been unable to overcome the reality that her constant companion would not be there, too. |||| oWeAEd go to church every Sunday together, Sunday school and church together, just the two of us, my mother and me.o When her mother died in 1991, at 104, oI said, aeSheAEs gone u and whoAEs going to be sitting beside me at church?AE\o
