NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

We are saddened once again by the loss of a comrade. J. Jones departed this life on April 13th after a long illness.

J. was an inspiration to all and certainly a beloved and highly respected member of our Chapter. He made every effort to be with us at our meetings even when his health problems were increasing. We pray for repose of his soul and send condolences to his family.
