I ended up in Augusta as a student at Paine College. I met his daughter Vicki there. My freshman year I stayed on campus with my sister but my sophomore year she went home and I didn’t want to stay on campus. That’s when I met her parents when she brought me to meet them to rent a apartment they had built for her when she graduated from college. Mr. Sanders was the kindest sweetest man who’s heart was as honest and pure as any I’ve met before and not many since. He was the father I never had. They all welcomed me into their homes and their lives and for someone from Connecticut, such nice people were strange😊. I came to realize this was normal and ever since then I’ve strived for that kind of normal. I love y’all and have you in my hearts and prayers. God has a true believer home with him now.🙏🏾❤️
