My condolences to this great man of God’s family. I haven’t seen Brother I in many years but never forgot him. My family attended Landmark Holiness up to their passing. He & Maxine were always there to support. Every time he saw me, he would said “I need to see you in church young lady.” So sorry to hear of his passing. He’s now reunited with those he lost on this earth & I’m sure he’s rejoicing.

Bro I was a very special man. I guess I really don’t remember a time of my life without him and Mama Mac. Youth Rallies, Youth Camps, Camp meetings, mission trips.. He was always there. I don’t believe I’ve every met a more Godly man. Deborah, Joan and Daniel I am so sorry for your loss but I am also so excited about Heaven’s gain. I wish I could have been there for that reunion. Love you all Deb and Jerry

Joan, Daniel, Debra I’m so sorry to hear about your precious dad. I have so many fond memories of him and also playing in the barn loft at your house. That seems centuries ago. Your dad left a huge legacy of love and it shines thru you and your families. I pray God will give you peace, comfort, directions and strength as you get thru the struggles of the heartache that comes from losing your precious sweet dad!! Keep his memories alive as you talk and reminisce about all you awesome precious memories. Love and prayers to you all. Sandra George Smith
