Ezra will always be in my memory standing straight and tall, singing praises to God, in the choir at the old Fort Trial Baptist Church. That would have been in the very early '50s. I am sure you and he have sung much praise to The Lord since then!!
You and your family are in my prayers. Iris

What a wonderful man. He will be so sadly missed. Heaven surely gained an Angel when our Lord called him home. Until we all gather for the great homecoming in the sky we will all miss you..
