    • Sergio, thank you so much for your kind words. Daddy and I spoke of you all frequently with great memories. I am certain the reason he called people “pop” was because of you! We love you all and thank you so much for your kind words on Daddy’s behalf.

Nothing will ever replace your father in your life but you can take solace on the fact that while he was in your life he performed the job of dad with honors.

    May you all find comfort from “The God of Comfort” Jehovah. Give him a chance!
    The Bible reveals that it is God’s purpose to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. Jesus said: “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”​—John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:1-4.
    When speaking of his recently deceased friend Lazarus, Jesus compared death to sleep. (John 11:11-13) Moreover, after Jesus resurrected him, Lazarus said nothing about having been in a place of torment or a place of bliss during the brief period of his death. (John 11:37-44) This is understandable, for the dead are unconscious. They do not experience suffering but await the “hour” in which they will be raised. In any event, the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus shows that the dead can live again. Indeed, by this miracle Jesus showed on a small scale what will take place on earth under the rule of God’s Kingdom. (Acts 24:15) What a comfort that is for those who lose their loved ones in death during this turbulent time!

  27. May you RIP my Langston University Offensive guard. I always knew when I ran behind you more holes open up more than often. I watch your son when I went to my Cousin Steve Mays Jr High school football game at Pearland and for many years after he finished and went to UofH to play finally realized that that young man running the ball was your son. I remember how you walked and your son walked just like you. I always said you should have been a running back at Langston. I’m glad we got a chance to talk on the phone several time in the last 5 years. I’ve sent out notices of your passing to other Langston Lions Football teammates inculding Thomas Hollywood Henderson former Dallas Cowboys who was also heartbroken upon hearing the news. To the family your in my thoughts and prayers.John”GOODTIME” Goodie (LU Fullback) Baltimore Colts 1975 Phoenix Arizona.
