    My condolences to my aunt Phil in my six cousins Debbie Diane Darlene Dana Vicky and Becky. We all know too well where my uncle is residing at this moment with Jesus and his saints. I sure do envy him, but at the same time I'm so happy he's with the Lord.. he won the race and fought the good fight. Till we all meet again on that day. Love you always Timmy Irwin

    I love brother younger dearly and Mrs.younger also. I remember when I first went to pleasant view, I was confused about my salvation, and he asked me "do you love Jesus?" I cried and said yes, and he said then you're saved, and he always was there no matter what with wisdom and literature. I learn a lot under his teachings Scott and I loved him very much Spencers ❤️😢

    Phyl and Family, I am at a loss for words. You and Bill were my mentors. Bill was my Angel and he Baptised me when I was 12. We have stayed in touch thru all the years and God sure is getting a Great Angel. I love you all more than you'll ever know. Vickie
