I am personally having sorrow upon sorrow that our brother Doug is no longer in our presence. The only comfort I receive when I think of him is his present status before the Lord. I only Doug for about a year, his speech was restrained, very rarely uttering a word.
Only about a month ago did he open up to me with his personal words, he expressed his great love for his family with tears. Our prayers are with you.
God Bless
Pastor Jerrold Browning
