    Sorry for your loss, Brother Andrew. Juanita had a long and rich life. God used her in some tremendous ways both in her school teaching and her ministry in her church. I was also a good friend with your dad, Gus. In fact we were in school together at Free Will Baptist Bible College, and I have fond memories of him. May God’s richest blessings be with you during this time.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for God’s Kingdom to come because He knew it would intervene to solve all mankind’s problems even sickness and death. (Revelation 21:3-5 & Daniel 2:44).
