Praise the Lord!
I will lift up my eyes unto the hill's from thence cometh my help!
Jesus Christ who is the author and finisher of our faith. Hallelujah!

I am so sorry to hear about Biff's passing. I had just seen him at Booker T. Kings funeral a few weeks ago. Oh! how we carried on about how good God is. He would always, I mean always ask me about my brother Buddy, he liked him alot; before he would even speak to me he would holla out where's Buddy? That's how I came too know Biff through my brother and then seeing him at the Faith & Hope Church when I would visit. He was a good man. I am going to miss him; because I always enjoyed the fellowship when me ran into each other; sharing the Good New's of Jesus.
Sista' Deloris you and your family are in my prayers. Just know everything is gonna be alright. God Bless
