  2. I was saddened to hear the news of your father’s passing. He was a constant, reassuring presence at First Baptist Church all my life and, along with your mother, was part of the core group that worked so diligently to teach and spread God’s message of love to the community. He will be missed, but we are assured by faith that we will see him again one day. Praise the Lord!
    My sincere condolences to all the family, Deborah (Rice) Bowman
