    I am so full of memories from the years our dad was pastoring Wilmington First Assembly. Thank you, Donald, for the support you always gave to both Dad and the church. I’m sure he and Mother were beyond excited to see you when you walked through those Pearly Gates. My condolences to Celia, Lisa, and the rest of the family.
