Darren and Sheila, Elmer and Mary, Mary and Buddy, Marie, Pat, Lynne, and rest of the family...I didn't know your father, your brother, your uncle personally, but had always heard he was a Godly man. It was definitely my loss. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you go through this loss, but you all know you will meet him again in Glory! May God wrap His loving arms around each of you and bless you.

Pastor Johnson and our Dad, Tom Harris, were lifelong friends. Pastor Johnson was a respected, great friend and confidant to our Dad. He handled our Dad’s funeral 9 years ago and was a real support to us during that time. They are having quite a reunion in heaven today. Our sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time.

Brother Otis was a great man, a man of God! He was a family man. He loved his dear wife, children, and grandchildren. He was a student of God's word, and a witness to the lost. I loved him, and will miss him.
