To God be the Glory....I was saddened to hear of his passing, a man who I grew to love and respect for his way was stern but gentle.  His advice was always helpful to me.  I most admired his love for God, church and fellowship.  I will miss visiting him whenever in Americus..now he will be forever  in my spirit.  Love ya "pop" we will meet again on that "day".
