The man that taught me the most about the ministry. He took me under his wing & loved me. You always knew he loved the Lord. He could be painfully direct at times but you knew he was the real deal. He was a pastor's pastor. He, like Solomon, looked to the Lord for wisdom & was rewarded. He was a tremendous blessing to my life! He made many sacrifices to pastor & help many small churches. Enjoy your reward brother! The rest of us will be there in just a little while. Love you & your family!
