My memories of J.C. go back to my childhood when attending the Monroe Baptist Associational Meetings. I cherish his words of encouragement and support through the years. His life of service and commitment revealed his love for Christ and His Church. May the Lord comfort you, being reminded that our sorrow is not without hope. "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors, and they works follow them. Rev. 14:13Farrell Isenberg
