I just got a phone call telling me of this tragedy that happened today.  I am still in shock.  Two of Bishop Harcourt Pinder former pastor of the Church of God, on East Street and Lilly of The Valley corner in Nassau along with one of his granddaughters, drowned today in Dean's Blue Hole in Clarence Town, Long Island.  I met his daughters for the first time on Sunday past when they sang at the gospel concert during the last day of Homecoming.  They were so happy and sang so beautifully.  Who knew that it was their last time!!  To be honest, I don't remember their names, one resided in Freeport and the other worked for foreign affairs in NY.  Please pray for the family especially Bishop Pinder who is very ill, and as a matter of fact, their death is being kept from him out of fear that he will not take the news too well.  They said that the reason why they were on Long Island was to celebrate along with their parents their 53rd wedding anniversary. A joyous occasion, ends in tragedy.  God know best and he never put more on us than we can bear.  so sad.... 

 

MAY THEIR SOULS AND ALL OF THE FAITHFUL DEPARTED, REST IN PEACE!!!

We gat haterz everywhere we go.  No longer do I cry when fake friends say, "Goodbye!"
