I will be missing for a couple days

We just finished the Studio Efficiency and heard of the passing of a dear friend and early pastor, Charlie Hugh Matthews.  His funeral will be in a small community, Mountain View, Alabama.  We are making arrangements to head that way.

Take care.

In the military, if you attend church at or near a base, it seems to become a home away from home.  Our church in Biloxi, MS was that kind of church, and Charlie Hugh was our pastor.  He helped us find our first apartment.  Driving us all over the area, until we found an apt.  down town we liked.

PS:

At our age, losing friends is becoming too familiar.
