You & Marian were the love of all my children! I will forever hold a special place in my heart being a part of your family! Sad is your passing but I know you wanted to be in heaven w/mom! Thank you so much for teaching me the “ART” of trading & baiting a hook! You brought God into my life & helped lift me up when my world was upside down. I love you like my own father & feel blessed that our paths crossed! Welcome home to you & Marian’s mansion God prepared for you both!

I’ll never forget the time he took with me as a young minister. Allowing me the privilege of preaching in his church and imparting wisdom to me. When I planted my first church he was such a blessing offering me so many resources. Happy for him but sad for his family.
