|Let the memory of Godwin be with us forever|
"We haven't forgotten Brother Mitchell - look forward to seeing him with his friend Pastor Nealy in the first resurrection! They will have some good stories to tell and laughs to share. Love to all the Mitchell Family."
"Today only marks a day closer to the coming of Christ. A time to be reunited with our savior and our loved ones. I look forward to the soon appearing of Christ. Blessed is he who sleeps in the Lord!"
"Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime,and, departing, leave behind us footprints on the sands of time;" (Henry Wadsworth Longfellow )
My father was such a man because he followed in the footsteps of "the greatest man who ever lived" Jesus Christ !
Thank you God for the privilege of being his daughter and for the promise of your soon return..blessed hope!"
"Your life has left a precious legacy for which we are thankful to God.
We will never forget ! We look forward to the grand reunion in heaven very soon...even so come Lord Jesus !"
"We celebrate what would have been dad's 90th birthday today!
This" blessed hope" keeps us foucused on being reunited with him in heaven and spending the ceaseless ages of eternity together! Let the church say Amen!"
"Elder Mitchell mirrored the true image of Christlikeness. Always a soldier in tune for reaching out to lost souls. He is forever missed but I know he rest in Jesus. I a wait the day that the trumpet shall sound and those that sleep in Christ shall rise and meet Him in the air."
"Thank you Lord for the gift of a father like dad on this his birthday....We celebrate a life well lived in honor to God!"
"Life is like a garden, cultivating, pruning, fertilizing, and enjoying the fruits of your labor. However, amidst all of that there is the fading of the most beautiful flowers. My father taught us that enjoying the beauty of the flowers if only for a little while is worth it all. The beauty of having him in my life was worth it all. I look forward to walking in the garden with you, Daddy."
"My dad was a very loving and caring father. God was truly first in his life. He was faithful to God, faithful to the church, faithful to the prison ministry, and faithful to his wife and family. He loved his family but he loved God even more. He was a man that strived to live what he preached. We will miss him very much. By God's grace we will meet again. Hold on my brothers and sisters!"
"My father was a man of God. He instilled in us the need to form a serious relation with our creator. He sent all his children to christian schools; so deep was his conviction in raising his children in the ways of the Lord, that he sacrificed for us to have christian education. I am thankful to my father for his guidance and his love for his family. He wlll be forever mised. Rest in Christ"
"Dad was the "best" father in every sense of the word.As the patriarch of our family he lived a life that consistently reflected his love relationship with Jesus. He modeled for us what is means to be a true Christian. Words cannot express how much we will miss his warm smile, sense of humor and words of wisdom. We look forward one day to being reunited with him in the earth made new!"
