Psalm 27:4-5
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.


Papaw, thank you for the life you and mamaw lived before us, you were always there for us, and your family. You are home now with your Beautiful Angel Mamaw, you and mamaw both will live in our hearts for ever, One day at that great Home Coming we will all be together again, give mamaw a big hug and kiss for me.

Tracy

Charles, You know your Dad was a wonderful person and he loved all his children so much. He was always good for a laugh at the bus garage when things got tough and we all loved him. You have certainly been a good son by taking care of him...you don't see that very often these days. May God be with you and comfort you in the days ahead. Gloria Wilkison Unit 2
