James David McCallie
August 30, 2019
He was the pastor at Mt. Nebo for awhile and while he was there it got the fireplace fixed which hadn't been used for quite awhile. During one of our sunrise services he went out front and played his trombone during the sunrise. He was a great man and a man of God. He will be missed. I pray for God's comfort and strength for Janet and David.

My deepest sympathy, Janet. You and Jim were a part of my 'growing-up' years in Shoals. What beautiful music the two of you made--piano, voice, and trombone. Sharing the gospel with such love and compassion was just what you did. A special place in my heart.
