    We are so sorry to hear about J.R. Passing away. We went to Faith Landmarks together. He did some painting for us in our home. Our sincerest sympathy to his family.

    Faith Landmarks Ministries was really blessed to have Ollie or as we also called him JR, as a part of out church family. Full of life and always willing to lend a helping hand, now He is part of the Cloud (Group) of Witnesses that have gone on before us. (Hebrews 12:1).
    Our prayers are with the family and we are so glad for the promise the Word reminds us that to be absent from the Body is to be present with the Lord. May God’s Peace be upon you with each coming day.
    Blessings, Faith Landmarks Ministries

    Shirley, I am so sorry about JR’s passing. Many years ago, he was very helpful with some repairs on the exterior of my home. Praying for God’s comfort and peace for you and your family.

    Just heard today of Ollie’s passing. Went to high school with Ollie in Giles County. We reconnected on Facebook a couple of years ago. Did not know that he had been ill. May God hold his family close today and in the days and weeks ahead.
