He was the best neighbor anyone could have! A truly good Christian who love his family and God with all his heart. I cannnot count the number of times he and Dallas Roy helped me when I was trying to rear two little kids on my own. I have no doubt that he is with his Lord! I am so very sorry and I am praying for his family that they are comforted in knowing where he is!
