His Grace and my entire family go back before he became a bishop. He not only officiated at my niece Georgia's baptism and later in years at her wedding. Everytime he was in Mobile, he always had dinner at my brother-in-law and sister's home. We'll miss his down to earth relationship with us, his smile and humor. Our faith has left a truly spiritual clergyman and friend. May God rest his soul and may his memory be eternal.
