OBITUARY

For I am now ready to be offered, And the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight; I have finished the course, I have kept the faith.

Henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, Which the lord, the righteous judge shall give me at that day; And not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

II Timothy 4:6-8
