I was shocked and saddened by Richard’s passing. As a member of Timothy myself, he served faithfully and was a great example of what a Christian man was and did. I admired Richard for these qualities. Wish I could better know Lynette and Johnny. We prayed for you to get home from your service, Johnny, long and hard. Now I know that you and Lynette are serving the Lord at GRC. My son lives there and I have an idea of your ongoing service and sacrifice of these vulnerable. With Christ’s love, Pam Allen
Lynette & family
