It’s hard to believe this good, gentle man is gone. He set such a great example for me, personally, and for many, many others. He contributed greatly to the Bibb County community and to Brent Baptist Church. He will be sorely missed! My condolences to Mrs. Shirley and the entire family.

We couldn’t have hoped for a better neighbor & friend than Mr. R. L. He was always so humble, kind & so eager to work & help others. He was a Godly man & his life was lead as a great example of the many Biblical references with regard to “Love thy neighbor”. He really lived The Golden Rule. Well done, Mr. R. L. ❤️We will miss him. Prayers for Mrs. Shirley & family. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
