I’m the Fall of 1997 I met Marcus on the campus of Hinds Community College and we became the best of friends. We sang in the gospel choir and help found the COGIC Club on campus. Marcus introduced me to Christ and taught me that you can be saved and have the Holy Ghost and still have a good time. Rest well my friend and I’ll see you on the other side.
