      I first met Deacon White during the time that Rev. Harold L. Cooper was Pastor of Little Grove. Third Bapt. church and little Grove Bapt. Church fellowshipped yearly. The last time I saw Deacon White He was glad to see Me as usual. He already had a smile on His face. I know that the Family will miss Him but He is ok now. I leave this scripture with You, John 14:1-6 In My Fathers house are many mansions If it were not so I go to prepare a place for You If I go and prepare a place for I will come again.
