"Today is December 1, 2016 and my Pastor, Apostle and friend would have celebrated his birthday today but TO GOD BE THE GLORY he is resting in the arms of Jesus-"
"To Pastor Glo and the entire Broadous Family - Gary & I rejoice with you in knowing Apostle is now at rest in Heaven. When I joined CBC back in 1987, Apostle's message was "Come Home", now 29 years later...he heard the Lord say "Come Home", My Good and Faithful Servant... Will Done! As many have expressed, my heart is heavy because I miss my spiritual safety net. Thank you so much Apostle for teaching us God's grace is sufficient and His mercy endureth forever.... With endless Love Sis Algie."
"Having been touched by the life and ministry of Apostle Broadous and befriended by Bishop Miquail Broadous; I count it a blessing and privilege to have been befriended by and labored with both and know that the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. May God strengthen this beautiful family and provide comfort for you as you have done for so many of us; you are forever in our prayers... James & Evelyn Perkins"
"Thank you Apostle for the wonderful home going services you officiated for the Coleman Family! Bless your home going! We know you are in the arms of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! My Mom Mrs. Winona Hickerson always paid her tithes even in her older years never forgot them, we loved Apostle and we will surely miss speaking with him. May he Rest In Peace!"
"Pastor Glo... My friend. I love you very much. When all is calm and quite know that "God will never leave you nor forsake you." I'm just reminding you of what you already know "there is a plan" and it will manifest itself in due time. Stay focused. Love you so much Millicent"
"Apostle I will forever miss you. Though time has passed, I will never forget all that you taught me. I learned so much under your teaching. You were my Dad (away from home) , my brother, and my friend. There are so many memories but the most important memory is how you taught me to have a relationship with God. A lesson that was the foundation as to who I am today in the body of Christ. It was your assignment from God to teach me. An assignment that you carried out perfectly and I thank you for it. Thank you for your wisdom, your love, and your laughter."
"My Pastor,my counselor,and friend. Thank you for helping me through my most difficult times in life. I will miss you Apostle Bill. Rest In Heaven."
"A Pastor's Heart. Your lasting legacy for me will always be that you are the personification of a "pastor's heart." Countless times you were there for me and my family -- the birth of a child, the divine healing of that same child, my uncle's homegoing, my aunt's homegoing, my son's mother-in-law being memorialized at Calvary. You were a wonderful friend to my husband, a trusted advisor and encourager for me, You attended celebrations in our home, you trusted the pulpit to both me and my husband, and on and on and on. As others have testified, you were there for them and their families too. You never grew tired of tending to your flock. You could always be counted on for spirit-filled words of wisdom when they were needed most. When our family was no longer at Calvary, you always kept the door open for us. And somehow I always expected you to be there. How lovely it is to have had you as Pastor in my lifetime and been on this earth when you were here. You will always be Pastor in my heart, here on earth, but apparently God needs you now. I will miss you forever. I see you smiling. Love always, Phyllis Tucker"
"I praise God for Apostle Bill...my uncle, my pastor, my mentor and encourager. I always viewed him as such an amazing man. He always came to see about our little family. He was there for me so often. I can't imagine having grown up without his love and support. He baptized me. He presented me as a debutante, came to see about me when I was in college. He applauded my successes and counseled me through my setbacks. He set me on a straight and always maintained integrity. Years ago, we talked about my wedding day and I told him I wanted him to perform the ceremony, Uncle Arthur to sing a song, and my Dad would walk me down the aisle. I praise God for honoring me with this privilege. Eternal gratitude for the presence of Apostle William T. Broadous in my life."
"I learned at a very early age what the word friend meant... For me it was "Bill." When my marriage broke up, and I was in a boarding house, Bill was there everyday proving to be a friend... We talked, laughed, and when we were finished he would drive us over to Bob's Big Boy in San Fernando, and we would order hamburgers. After we ate, he would take me back to the boardinghouse and we sat in the car for hours conversing about anything and everything. I know now he knew I needed someone, and it was him. Bill was my friend and confidante, and I loved him very much. Forever in my heart, your sister-in-love, Lillian Hogains Broadous."
"A servant and Soldier in the Army of the Lord. My father-in-law (Kenneth) Apostle William T. Broadous impressed a legacy of righteous living from his persuasion of his eternal righteousness in Christ. He epitomized the caliber of a faithful Overseer, Shepherd given by God, endearing husband and sacrificial father. He never compromised, he never wavered in his faith and representation of Christ, he never let up, he never gave up, he endured his appointed race. I will miss you sir and am forever grateful for instilling family, faith, and fortitude in this servant. You have fought a good fight sir and your earthly absence reverberates our inheritance of the promise of our Lord. We love you dearly and will rejoice with you again in that great getting up morning."
"I have been under the leadership of Pastor BILL for over 32 years. he has been my leader, provided friendship and support throughout the years. HE will be missed but I'm happy that he CAN say hello to LEE. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR MY FAMILY.. Love, Bea"
"Apostles Broadous I heard this name at Sunday family dinners "a lot" church, church, church, Calvary this, Apostles that, I didn't think anything of it, but once I meant the Apostles he was really a good man and a godly man, he made me feel at home, like I was a member. I listen to his message and really start to believe that God is good and if I trust God things would work out. I'm going to miss him putting me on blast when I did come to church. Much respect Mr. King
P.S. Thank you for looking after my wife while I was out of town working"
"Always remembering my Pastor, my Spiritual Father. I will always cherish the memories of spiritual guidance and the uplifting messages each Sunday. Love you, Miss you, Love you much."
"Billy my Brother my Brother! Mohawk Summers, church picnics (before we knew what the word meant) at Griffith Park. The BIG 5 together! I remember one night, when we were older, going to school, working, going to pick someone up or drop one of us off somewhere (we were usually not home at the same time) but this night we were all there TOGETHER! Alicia, Marie, Abdullah (Hillery), me Furaha (Rosita) and you William. We were talking LOUD! And laughing LOUD! Slapping 5 (when slapping 5 was a Black thing)! We were hungry, we decided to make succotash. Best succotash I've ever had. OH YEAH! Made with love.
My Brother, my Brother! Apostle Bill. Peace & love!
"To my dear beautiful Daddy, I am so honored and blessed to have you as my Daddy. My heart has been shattered into pieces since you have gone to glory but I recognize absent in body means present with the Lord. I will miss our special times together and how much we shared together at home, in your office, the fast car rides, and our shopping days! You always gave me unconditional love and you always believed in me. I love you so much; my world has been upside down since you have departed but I must hold to what you have always taught me in the Word. Stand strong in power of His might and He will strengthen my heart. I thank God he designed and ordained for you to guide and protect me here on earth. I pray everyday as I remember to let everything I do lead to worship, I also honor the legacy of what you taught and demonstrated, being a true servant of our Almighty God."
"Apostle, Darryl and I will miss you so much. Thank you for being such a great spiritual leader, teacher, and friend. For all your words of encouragement, laughter, and your faith in us. I'm going to miss how you looked over your glasses and would say "Daughter do we want to do that" I'm going to miss how you and Darryl laugh and jock around. I have so many memories of your unselfishness. Buy one really stands when my dad was sick you and Pastor Glo were in Texas and was going to leave the next day going back to California. However, you drove three and a half hours to visit and pray with my dad. You didn't think about yourself you were only thinking about your member. And that's how your were with all your members we Love you so much for showing us how to walk in the Lord. We are so thankful for the love and dedication shown to Calvary. From the Freeman Family we Love you with all our heart and you will be missed."
"To our Apostle, I have so many great memories of you, and the Calvary family, it is difficult to think of Calvary and not think of you, it's hard to walk through the doors of Calvary and not see you. Apostle you have touched so many lives. It's because of your teaching that I know the Lord, and I know in my heart that "God's grace is sufficient" you have fought a great fight, you will truly be missed. You will always be in our hearts Cheryl, LaTisha, Justin, Brianna, Danyelle, and Daniel."
"Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Apostle, You lived this passage. You were an inspiration to all you encountered. Fear was not in your vocabulary. You faced everything head on. Now you've ran your race, and you fought a great fight. God has said "Well done My Good and FAITHFUL Servant!!! You will forever be missed. My Family loved you dearly. For as much as we loved you, God loved you best. Rest Apostle, Rest.You stayed the course and finished your race in a Mighty Way. It was a memorable 34 years under your teachings and now I must let go, until we meet again."
"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write,
Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:
Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and
and their works do follow them. Revelation 14:13
I can hear Apostle Broadous declare "Glory To GOD"
as only he could when he would stand to preach.
He was indeed a Pastor who loved the people of GOD.
When my dad passed away Apostle and Rev. Glory called
me to pray with me I really thought that was special.
All of our lives have been made much richer for having
Apostle William T. Broadous pass our way!!! I Thank and
Praise GOD for the Life, and Legacy of such a Great
Our Beloved Apostle William T. Broadous will be forever
In our heart's and always in our thoughts!"
"Apostle, you will be forever missed by Curtis, Brandon and me. We are so thankful for the opportunity to sit under your leadership at Calvary Baptist Church. What an awesome example you have been of love, faithfulness, mentor, pastor and friend. I have no doubt God planted us at CBC over 25 years ago to be under your spiritual teaching. We are blessed, stronger and better for having passed your way. Rejoicing for your life!"
"I am blessed to say that I was under the leadership of Apostle Broadous for 34 glorious years. It was an honor and a blessing to serve him in a very meaningful way, through food. As the time passes on I will always remember the precious moments we shared through good food. I will always be thankful for his guidance and the teachings he gave at Calvary. Apostle Broadous I will forever miss you calling me "ANNNAAAJEEEAAAN!!!!!" in a tone only you can carry. I will always leave a slice of cake for you. Love Always - Anna Jean"
"The many years under Apostle William T. Broadous's leadership will always be a cherished memory for me. Thank you for Godly love, guidance, happiness, giving of your time, care, and concern for me. You held a special place in my heart. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to be a member at Calvary during your season of Ministry. You will truly be missed!"
"I will truly miss Apostle Broadous. Over the years his teachings helped me to grow spiritually, his encouragement helped me to continue on, and his sense of humor kept me smiling and to that I will always be thankful."
"Dear Pastor, I can truly say you were the epitome of a Shepherd. Always tending to the sheep of Calvary, present and past, as well as their loved ones. In December of 1999 you were there for my surgery, praying before i went under anesthesia. January of 2013, with O2 and on your walker you navigated the vastness of Kaiser Sunset to pray with my Daddy before his surgery, and again in November and December of 2014, you were there to pray over my brother Jonathan. You presided over my Dad and brother's Homegoing services and checked in on my Mom after their passing. Like I said, a true
You baptized my dad, brother, mother and son and spiritually led us all for many years. I credit my time and membership at Calvary for much of who I am spiritually today. I have special memories of bringing you Christmas fudge, you calling me "daughter", and giving me counsel when I needed it. My one regret was not following through on that Kenion Sunday dinner we talked about but we'll have one in your honor. You will never be forgotten by the Kenion's. Much love."
"I was born in the church, but when I left home for the Air Force and for college, my participation was very little. As a young adult I felt a calling from God to take my place in church and serve, so I searched until I found Calvary Baptist and God appointed Pastor Bill as my sheperd. God had picked the perfect pastor for me, someone who would teach me and help me to serve God. He had a love for children’s salvation and participation in church from the very beginning of their lives! Through Rev. Popwell, Pastor had men interacting with babies in the nursery, which is where I initially served with his son Miquail. The first thing he asked me when I joined the church was, "where do you want to serve?", and I said with the children, in the choir...before I knew it...I was the director of the children's choir and remained so for a quarter of a century!!!. Pastor's concern for children's salvation was further demonstrated by the Calvary Christian school...a school my grandson attended. Then pastor wanted a more structured organization to assure that children would receive the gospel in detail and on their level so he charged me and Iridella Thomas to create a "Children's Department" which initially operated all week long...not only on Sunday. But that still was not enough for pastor Bill. He wanted the children to experience worship on their level, so he next had the Children's Church created!!! There was so much more than Sunday School at Calvary for children.
We were operating on faith. Faith in all that we had learn from the bible, especially the Gospel...but all of that studying and faith was turned to KNOWLEDGE when Pastor had a Holy Ghost experience – A spiritual heavenly mountain top experience..not a social mountain top one like Dr. King's. In Pastor's experience he was filled with the Holy Spirit and basically transported to a heavenly experience where he could feel God's presence and all the goodness that goes with it. When Pastor told me about this experience he had while retreating with his wife Gloria, God had prepared me to know exactly what he was talking about because I had experienced it too while listening to a tape that Pastor Bill had made during Christmas, while I was driving down highway 5. Pastor Bill was driven by that experience...knowing the beauty that laid ahead for him...Now he is in spiritual perfection with our savior and our heavenly father, where I know I will see him again."
"My Pastor, mentor, Friend, I will miss him dearly!,"
"What a friend my extended family had in my 2nd lifetime Pastor. Pastor William T. Broadous. My spiritual teacher, mentor and family friend you will truly be missed. You were there as my counselor, encourager and supporter in matters of biblical doctrine from the time of a youth to a grown women. I will forever hear you saying "daughter you okay" and me responding "yes Pastor".
You married me, christened and baptized my two children as well as was there for every hospital stay I had. Regardless of how often I said it was not necessary I could count on you being there with a big smile and heart felt prayer before ever surgecial procedure. From the Small, Brown and Harris family we will miss you but forever have you in our hearts. I remember our last conversation very clearly on Mar. 7th 2016.
My mom Hazel Brown was having surgery that morning at 5 AM and as we entered the door of the hospital to check her in who was sitting there in the lobby fully dressed and a big smile on his face? No other than Pastor Bill. I tried to get on you about being there and so early in the morning and all I could hear was "Mother Brown and daughter" good morning. You know I would be here. I laughed and you said lets pray. What a friend my family has had in Pastor Broadous.
To the Broadous family we offer our deepest heart felt condolences."
"The DEVASTATION hit me like a truck!!!!!! I can't NOT breathe! Never in a million years did I think I would have to really say good bye to my Pastor , Spiritual Father and Friend of over 26 years Apostle William T Broadous ! He was suppose to Marry me, Christen and Baptize my babies! We were suppose to have more time in ministry together! Ugh!!!!!!!!!
Please pray for the Broadous Family at this hour of sorrow and transition!
I personally will never be the same again! He is a LEGEND to Pacoima and the San Fernando Valley! The corner of Vaughn and Dronfield lost its brightest light and Calvary Baptist Church lost its Captain ! #ApostleWTBroadousLegacy Teria Broadous"
"Words cannot express how much Apostle William T Broadous meant to me,.He was a family member,a friend and someone you could always depend on day or night.Most of all he was our spiritual leader and teacher.One of Gods greatest gift of special people are ones who touch our days with kindness,gratitude and love.I will miss talking and laughing with you,and you looking over your glasses at me because of something I said.I love you and i will truly miss you.Thanks for being in our.lives."
"This is my tribute to Apostle "Big Shot" Broadous. Big Shot was a nickname that we had for each other, which he started. LOL. My earliest memories of church had him in it. He has not only been a pillar for the church and community, he was for me and my family. He was there, not only for the great celebrations, but one of the first ones there when we had to bury a loved one. He has been a consistent and committed rock. Even when I started in Calvary School, Breakout, and serving the youth at Calvary, he supported me. Rather it was financal support for a youth retreat or given me opportunities to develop in ministry, he has been there. I'm forever grateful for how God used him to show love to me, my family, Calvary, and this community. He trully is a Big Shot to me. Love you Apostle"
"I am so grateful to have had Apostle as my pastor for 20 years. What a blessing !!!"
"The Broadous family. A family I have known most of my life. A family that has meant so much to us. i was baptized by Rev. Hillary T. Broadous in 1962 when Calvary was where the existing parking lot is today.I had the pleasure of growing up during the same era as you Apostle Broadous. During that era we called you Billy. I witnessed you grow from Billy to Bill to Reverend to Pastor to Apostle. You have meant so much to the community and our family.."
"i have been friends with the broadous family for a long time rev. bill you spoke @ my sons funeral for your sister my friend alicia duncan broadous because she had a convention to attend. i love to come to calvary to hear your message and @ the end of the service you would say a few time "HEY,HEY,HEY loved it we will hear you again in heaven there is great peace there among the angels you will be greatly missed"
"To The Broadous Family
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Reche, Joshua and myself send our deepest condolences to the entire Broadous family. Thank you for sharing your husband, your father and your brother with our family. He was truly a man after God's own heart and a man of integrity. His love for the Lord and God's people was demonstrated by the life he lived, and for that I am grateful! The words of our church vision "everything we do leads to worship" and that was his lifestyle-WORSHIP. He was not just a preacher and Apostle, he was and will forever be my PASTOR! We shared that AGAPE love!"
"Dear Apostle. I'm glad I gave you your flowers while you could smell them."
"Apostle, you opened my eyes to the true understanding on the “Reality of Life and Faithfulness of God” as illustrated in your podcast 8/2015 Psalms 41. I truly appreciate you and I know that the work you did here on earth is merely a copy of what is in heaven. Rest in Peace."
You will be sorely missed in our community as a light in darkness, a leader and prayer warrior.
The Dorothy Williams family will miss you."
"A WARM, SWEET AND WONDERFUL MAN OF GOD. THANK YOU FOR THE BLESSING YOU HAVE BEEN TO SO MANY. YOUR CHURCH FAMILY WILL MISS YOU FOREVER."
"Pastor, Apostle, Spiritual Father, and Friend, to me you were all these rolled up in one man. Teach, preach, encourage, listen, for me you did all these things masterfully. Sing, laugh, joke, love, with me you shared all these freely. My heart is heavy and my eyes are leaking, yet my soul is light for thru it all I rejoice for you Apostle.
For I know you have raised your arms high in praise, taken a lap of victory, and shouted for joy as you walk around heaven or sit at the feet of the Almighty. I love you with the love of Christ Apostle and you are the best Spiritual Father I could have and I am overjoyed to have served under your stewardship. My prayer is to honor your memory with my continued service in the Body of Christ.
EVERYTHING I DO LEADS TO WORSHIP!!!"

"Apostle you have been a source of my strength in your teachings. You have always been there for me and I thank you."
"I am forever grateful for the love and support Apostle, Cousin Bill, shared with me and my family, the John H. Broadous family. With the transitioning to Glory of my father and his brothers, Cousin Bill became the Spiritual Father that I sought when I needed special prayer for wisdom and guidance in serving the national Broadous family. Apostle and Prophetess Glo were there to support me at the launching of my business. I could hardly believe that they drove all of the way to Carson, CA, on a weeknight at that, to support me. Cousin Bill, thank you for blessing me in such a special way. You truly "are" a remarkable Man of God. Love you, Cousin Deb"

"What can I say about my Pastor Apostle William T Broadous first I would say he was my friend he was my mentor he was a man chosen by God a man called by God a man on a mission to spread the word of God and unselfish man walking upright daily a man of No Nonsense but always serious about your salvation I believe the evening of God calling Apostle home he stepped out of his old body and stepped right into his new body where he is now with the Lord it was an honor and a privilege to have set under the founder dr. Hillary T Broadous and Apostle William T Broadous i have to say his work down here was finished and he finished strong a friend forever Dortha"
"Words are not enough to tell you how thankful I am of God to have placed you in my life to help train me up. Not only were you my spiritual father, but you also gave me wisdom like my earthly father should have. I'll never forget my grandmother, Mineola always trying to tell you not to mess up her office (your office) then you both just laugh and had a good time. As a child you don't know how moments like that will affect your life as you get older. Thank you for everything you have spoke into my life and taught me. The Newman and Broadous family will forever be close, you and my grandma made sure of that. God has one of his best angels right by his side now. Love you."
"My two earthly Spiritual fathers are resting in Heaven-Glory, Apostle, Pastor, Rev Uncle Bill you did the work of the Lord, and we the Duncan & Broadous family will always cherish your memory and good works, we Love u always & forever, you took care of your life; and the Lord God will take care of your death. RIP Itz All Good..."
"I have been a member of Calvary since 2005, not as long as many. The Apostle made me feel right at home from the very beginning. Almost immediately he knew my name, I found this out the day he said hi Jackie. I am so grateful for his leadership. My very first public prayer was an evening after bible study when the Apostle told me, just pray from your heart. The Apostle was truly a powerful and mighty man of God. Rest easy Apostle, if I live as you preached to me, I know that I will see you in Glory."
"Thank you for being my Spiritul Pastor since I was 10....you will truly be missed"
"As I look back over the 31 years that you were my Reverend, Pastor, Apostle and Friend. I praise God for your teachings.mostly I think God for your life and that you believed in doing everything decent and in order and you knew how to WORSHIP.. You ran your race and finished STRONG. now rest Thank you Lord for MY Apostle."
"To my lovely Uncle Bill, you were a powerful pastor and a wonderful and super funny uncle. I love you and will miss you, and you will forever be in my heart!"
"Apostle William T. Broadous you are the Pastor of Pastors. I don't believe that there has ever been a Pastor who has walked this earth and endured the challenges as you did. For 33 years you have been My Pastor and I thank God for you. Even when I fell you were there to pick me up when I went to the hospitals you were there at 6 am in downtown L.A to pray with me, when I loss My Sister Joanne RIP you were there calling to see what I need. Your love was deeply felt by me and anyone who had the opportunity to be under your anointing. I am going to truly miss you but as you said at the Homegoing of My Friend Cyndi Ervin that Death was a time to celebrate. So I am going to do just that Celebrate your transition to Glory. I will see you on the other side when I finish my race. Until then know that you will be missed."
"Apostle Broadous was a man of valor, of courage, of love and respect. I am the woman of God that I am today because of him and his teaching. He ordained me as a minister and was a wonderful teacher of the word of God. Thank you Apostle William T. Broadous for all you love support and wisdom that you gave me. I will always love you and you will be forever missed."
"Apostle Broadous and Brother Arthur led me to Christ, he encouraged me to be better than I was acting. You'll be missed Apostle Broadous."
"Apostle, the memories I have of you will always be cherished in my heart. You had the gentleness of a brand new baby, the strength of a bear, the courage of a lion and a peace for life that only God understood. I remember when Bishop was installed as Pastor at Grace. You came to the church one Sunday and asked me, "First Secretary, how's he treating you?" and before I could answer you, you said, "Don't let him bully you, show no fear, and understand that he's learning too!! Tell him that you have his father's phone number AND you're not afraid to use it! !!!" After that day Bishop was a piece of cake and I soon learned that I didn't need to call Apostle anymore. I had evolved into a well rounded Administrative Assistant. Thank you for the SUPPORT, the MEMORIES, the LOVE. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY......THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR SON. THE GREATEST PASTOR A CHURCH COULD HAVE ..... BISHOP MIQUAIL M. BROADOUS, SR.
WE MISS AND LOVE YOU POPPA BROADOUS."
"The Broadous Family is a big part of my life and The Newman Family. I want to say thank you Lord for blessing me with this family. From Rev. H.T. Broadous, Mother Rosa Broadous and all their children. I have been taught by the best about the goodness of you Lord, so I thank you for being in my life and putting this great of God in my life. Apostle I will always remember you and all that you taught me, not only me but my children and grandchildren. My family has so many memories to look back. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Calvary Baptist church will always be my first place to come to. God didn't make a mistake when he called your name. Now you can rest and be at peace. I will always pray and remember to put God first. I love you and miss you everyday. R.I.P
My mother Mineola Newman will miss you to and know that she was your biggest supporter."
"Hey Pastor Broadous I would have Loved to hear you say one more time "Ole TANGIE". No one says it like you!!! You were one of the most Influential Spirit Filled Leaders in my LIFE!!! I remember you would want to hear me sing "Behold all Servants of the Lord" and I also remember one time when I was hesitant about singing and you stated that I should always be OBEDIANT and Sing because you didn't want me to Miss the change to Be a Blessing by ministering through song to others!!! I Love you and I remember one of the first things you told me that helped my in my walk with God was " Daughter who the SON sets free is free indeed!!!! Wow did that mean so much to me!!! I wish I could be there to Celebrate your Home Going but until we meet again!!! I say Rest on in the arms of our Lord!!! Thanks for allowing me to be apart of your life and Thank you Teria for making this available to give honor and tribute to your father!!!! God Bless you and the Family"
"As much as I wanted you to remain with us, God was ready for you to be at rest. No more pain, no more heartaches, and nothing but Joy unspeakable. Dad because of grace and your obedience to your call, you have earned it. I will never forget the teachings you talk me, and the example of leadership you've shown us. I love you so much and will miss you until I see you again. I love your life! You were amazing all the way around. I am grateful that God chose you to be my father. Your strength to endure all you've been through, is the epitome of perseverance. See you on the other side dad!"

I will miss your touch, scent, colognes & kiss. I'm happy for you now. No more pain to deal with in your body. I'll see you again when I get to glory. Until we meet again, I'll treasure all the memories we have made with each other & will NEVER forget. I have enough of them until we meet again.
