I met Maurice when I started to attend Sanctuary Church. I notice the instant connection he made with my husband when he came to visit our church. From that moment we became friends. As long as his health would allow him, Maurice was always in church. He was such an encourager. He always makes sure that I hugged his neck. My friend, you are gone but will not be forgotten. One day we will meet at Jesus' feet. To Maurice family and friends, please accept my condolence. May God gives you strength during this time of loss.
