Momma Willis my wife and I thank you for all your love support and prayers. You have been and will forever be a instrumental part of our life and ministry. I thank you for taking us in as your “California Children’s.” I thank you for our long talks and text messages. Your Godly and life living wisdom will forever be cherished. We love you and already miss you. I thank God that you and I talked on 7/3 and I was able to say I love you and was able to hear you say I love you both one final time. The Henderson’s are praying for your family and especially Bro. Eric......I’m going to miss your singing and I honestly thank God for YouTube because when I start missing you a little too much I can search your name and hear you sing or preach a mighty word. Take your rest Momma and we will see you in that great by and by.
