Not sure what to say?

May God's promise found in John 6:40, of the hope to see our loved ones again, comfort your heart and give you peace, strength, and hope in the days ahead.

I met Mr. Rahmaan many years ago at the VA. We became friends and he was a friend indeed. He would go out of his way to help anybody. I knew him to be loyal and he loved his family. His family was his world and to know him was to know them. I know he will be greatly missed, but he will live on in memory.

Such a wonderful, beautiful man, always willing to help, give all he could. His laughter and warm smile will be remembered. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Maggie Smith and family.

To God be the Glory for all the great things he has done to Rahmaan family from the families of Marilyn Green Shontane Smith Willie Barringer and the entire Barringer families our prayers are with you God bless you. And to my classmate Floyd Anderson from the class of 1973 North Mecklenburg we love you and hang in there it's gonna be alright. We lpve you.
