There is another Angel on God's team. RIP Gov. Askew.

One of the greatest men to serve as Governor of Florida. I am truly honored to be allowed to sign a tribute to Governor Askew. You merely changed your address, as He needed another angel. A great man, that represented what a true beliver of Christ (in politics)is all about. God Bless.
