  1. Sorry for the loss, but he has to be happy to be with his loving wife, we loved both of them.
    With prayer,Dillon,asked me to start up a prayer chain for the church, since I knew he prayed before contacting me I knew it was from the Lord,Dillon had a strong phone line to the Lord,that’s all I needed to know,I know he is in heaven still praying.
    Thank you Dillon for your strong belief….

  2. A wonderful man and minister. My husband and I felt blessed to have known he and Vivian and to be a member of his congregation in Plainfield. A true servant of the Lord. My deepest sympathy to you.
