    You will long* for the work of your hands.”

    Octavious and I were classmates throughout all of our school days. He was a wonderful friend and always remained in close contact with the Phillips High School classmates of 1965. He will be missed. May God comfort his family and friends.

    It saddened me to hear of “Caboo’s passing. He was truly a beautiful person, a man of God who always had a smile on his face and when talking with him it was always a peaceful like adoration of joy and kindness. To the family, stay strong knowing that he is in God’s Kingdom and that you will see him again.

    To the dear family of Brother Bellamy, we were so heart broken to hear of his passing. We, the McNair family met Brother Bellamy 8 years ago at the Word Church in Norfolk, Virginia. Always the first to arrive each Thursday night and ascertain that everything was set to order before class. A great leader and lover of Jesus Christ. Bellamy Family, you have our sincere condolences.

    To the Family of Brother Bellamy, our hearts are heavy over his passing. My wife and I met him at The Word Church International Ministries (TWCIM) Tidewater about 7 years ago. We remember him as being a “faithful Servant” of the Living God. He was one of the pillars of TWCIM Tidewater and is the epitome of one, sold out to the Lord Jesus Christ and his faithful service at TWCIM Tidewater proves that this was true. We can hear the Lord Jesus Christ saying, “Well done thou good and faithful servant”. He will be sorely missed by us all.
    We are standing with you and praying for you during this difficult time. May the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort strengthen you where you’re weak, heal you where you’re hurting, and grant you His perfect peace in Jesus name.
    God bless.💖💞🔥🔥

    I met Octavia Bellamy approximately 30 years at a chandelier company on Ballentine Blvd where he worked. We immediately connected. As a result of our connection, we continued to stay in touch and we both attended the jail ministry banquets, We also used to walk together at the Kroc Center. It was extremely surprising to myself and my family to hear about his recent passing. Octavia was a faithful brother in Christ.He will be truly missed. My prayers of comfort and peace to the family.
