As I was growing up at Red Oak often. As a teenager a group of us from Valley Drive wou l d sing there for revivals etc. He was faithful. He loved his church family. He has been homesick to go to his Heavenly home. Our loss but heavens gain. No more trials or sickness. Never a worry again. With his Master and rejoicing. May God comfort Carolla, Carla n family. Love n prayers, Tina. He will be so very missed by his church family.
