2Timothy 4: 6-8
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 my 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.
Memorials may be made to Two Mile Swamp Baptist Church at 1066 Bonnette Road Cope, S.C. 29038 or to any other church of your choice.
