    Kenny and Jane it was such an honor for you to allow me to be a part of your Mothers Homegoing. You all are such a sweet family and a mothers love was shown in each of you. It was a great blessing for me to be able to research the history of the Old Regular Baptist religion as compared to some of today. Your Mother had to be a very special person and again thank you for allowing me to be a part of that service. I’m sure she is resting in the arms of her Savior and we will see her again very soon.
