“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.  Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved his appearing.”  -- 2 Timothy 4:7-8

He was truly a giver of joy and encouragement, and prayer. His prayers for me were precious and helped me through a time of struggle in my life. To see the praying hands text from him on a consistent basis always brought a smile to my lips and hope to my heart. Thank you Marcus, at 88 and 80 we will see you soon and look forward to all that heavenly worship and singing. Your singing was a joy to many and to me!!!!!!!!

Dad, you will always be in our heart and we will see you again one day. I know the family made you proud of the service that was held for you. You set the bar high and left a life long legacy for generations to come!
