A beloved friend and mentor to Ed and myself. Always a smile, always an encouraging word of Scripture. he touched so many lives with his kindness, caring, and dedication to Jesus Christ. His reward is great in Heaven, for all the souls he has led to the Lord. God bless you Debbie and family. He will never be forgotten.
