Brother Harold Sidebottom took me under his wing when I first got in church at Drexel Gardens. His family took me to all the Fellowship Meetings till I learned where all the churches were located. When I met my husband and eventually fell in love,with our Pastors blessings Brother Sidebottom married the both of us. We loved to hear his teachings and/or preaching. He will never be forgotten!
