Bro. Jerrell and Susan, I send my love and sympathy to you in the passing of Ruth Ann. Your family has meant so much to me for many years. You always show me sweet hospitality as I stayed in your home many times. Ruth Ann helped me so much. She taught me how to cook and always ready to help me. I am so sad that I am not able to be with you due to my walking and health but please know I am praying for you. God bless. Bro. Eddie.
