Brother Sholar will be greatly missed for a long time to come. How awesome and inspiring he was to many in the church. There is no doubt that "Jack" is now with the Lord, singing and kicking up his heels. No more cane! No more pain, only gladness, no sadness. Glenda, know that you are loved and our prayers will always be with you.
