Thank you for your service to God and country.

I am deeply sorry for the loss of your mother Richard Overton. One day we will not have war or weapons any longer, as Isaiah 2:4 says They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore. Imagine a world with no more war. :)

I first became acquainted with Mr. Overton several years ago when I worked in the public sector. At the time he shared stories from his personal experience, which really impacted me. Mr. Overton conveyed a unique, rich oral history which could teach us much today. He truly is a treasure and will be missed.

What a beautiful "SOUL" Rest In HEAVEN,& thank God for sharing you with us!!! Almeta"Jo"Rucker
