In lieu of flowers, please consider giving a gift to Rescue 1 because Papa was so proud of and talked often about the ministry (founded by his Grandson) of Rescue 1 Global to the enslaved around the world. We would be honored if you would remember him with a gift to help prevent victimization, rescue the enslaved and restore the survivor! We appreciate your love, prayers and gifts during this time.
