The memories flood my mind each time I see a picture or video. You were my first and most consistent role model. You embraced my wife from day one and encouraged her to the end. My children know you as papa, pastor, and prophet. We will continue to keep your legacy alive and share the gospel of the God that you loved deeply until we meet again.

Love your son your son

Knowing that I didn't drive any more him and Donna would come by and pick my sister and me up when we didn't have a ride he always had the same spirit never agorant and I have called him every once and a while if I didn't understand something in the bible he didn't act like I was disturbing him he would take his time and answer your question cause you could tell that's what he loved doing I will miss him terrible just thinking about our bible studies it bought each of us close together and that was because of his leader ship I will continue to pray for the family cause I know you're hurting but I believe one day if we be faithful we will all see each other again until then peace and blessing to all of his family
