      May this dear family find additional comfort in knowing we are praying that Jesus will be your source strength.
      Deacon White was a true servant of God. He was always
      helping where he could. At Mount Zion Baptist Church he enjoyed being a serving member of the monthly Senior Fellowship gatherings. Surely, he wanted to hear his Savior say “Well done My good and faithful servant.”
