I am so so sorry to hear of Pastor Ellis passing. I used to attend his church in Jacksonville years ago. Ms. Donna I am not sure you remember me but your family made a huge impact on me while I attended CFWB. I was expecting at the time and now my girl is 25 yrs old. So it was a very long time ago, but I am thankful for the wonderful testimony Pastor Ellis had.

My dear friend Donna,
I am so sorry for the lost of your soul mate. The last time we saw each other we talked and talked and I could tell how much in love you were with J.B. You were truly blessed with many years together in your earthly journey. The greatest journey is yet to come. J.B. has already made his journey and one day we will make ours. What a celebration and comfort to know your loved one is safe within the arms of God. Our prayers are with you and your family.

Donna & Family,
Our prayers and thoughts are with you. JB will always have a place in my heart since he was my first Pastor and shared the gospel with me and Baptised me and Tammy. He encouraged me in my early Christian life and was dedicated to winning the lost. I will always remember his dedication and work that he gave Calvary FWB Church. One of the memories I have is when he would always say hog wash while preaching. Any way he is home now and rejoicing. God Bless you all.

GOD SAW HIM GETTING TIRED
AND A CURE WAS NOT TO BE
SO HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND HIM
AND WHISPERED COME TO ME
WITH TEARFUL EYES WE WATCHED HIM
AND SAW HIM SLIP AWAY
ALTHOUGH WE LOVED YOU DEARLY
WE COULD NOT MAKE YOU STAY
A GOLDEN HEART STOPPED BEATING
HARD WORKING HANDS AT REST
GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS TO PROVE TO US
HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST
