I met RL early in 1994. He handle a accident for me and he did it with the utmost respect and care. As time goes we became friends I loved his wisdom and he loved my passionate insights on helping God's people he challenged me to do social work or counseling. When I recieved my Master's in 2017 he was the first to know! He was like an uncle at times but always gave me support in my good, bad, and ugly events of my growth and development. We may have lost a great man but his influence lives in me! Rest with the Ancestors Ase
