  1. Hello, I knew your father, I attended PV baptist after my bro Benjiman attended. I’m sorry that he left earth and I will always believe Jesus is king and we shall meet again.

  2. Sorry that we never got airborne together, Henry, but I guess you’re flying on your own now. I know that you got the best Christmas present possible-getting to see Fay once again. Give her a hug for me. It was a pleasure knowing you, sir.

  3. Dave, So sorry to hear of your father passing. I’m currently out of town so I won’t be attending services.

    In our prayers,

    Michael Whittemore and family
