To Sis Robin Brown and Family;
Our prayers are with you during this time of transition. Be assured that God's strength is your strength. The promises to those who know God is to transition into His presence. May the grace of God give you peace in knowing and receiving the Love that only God can bestow. Be reminded of the psalmist who says; "His anger endureth but a moment, weeping may endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning".
Lovingly,
On behalf of the First Baptist Family, Pittsburg CA
Pastor Henry L Perkins

Uncle Ernie, you were a matchmaker back in the day. In 1973 you saw me playing pick-up basketball with six teenage boys. On the side line was his seventeen year old nephew and you told him "that girl is going to be your wife one day and you are a damn fool if you don't ask her for a date." Thirty plus years later, two beautiful children and four grandchildren. Thanks for the treasured memories...
Bev (Davis) Bell.....see you again one day...

Robin, we are sorry to hear about the passing of your dad. In this unhappy hour, we are reminded of the book of John, which states "Truly, truly I say to you , he that hears my word and belives him who sent me, has eternal life, he does not come under judgement, but has passed from death to life." We hope these words add comfort for you and family. Love, First Baptist Church Children Ministry.

Ernie - you always had a story back in the day, and I'm sure that didn't change. Each time I drive down your street. I still look up in the driveway to see if the grill is on. You were always welcoming and kind, with some good advice! Rest in Peace, and know all is well with the Lord.
