When I heard the news I instantly thought of the many spiritual conversations Chris and I have had. He recognized that we all have a spiritual need. May Jehovah continue to be with the family during this difficult time remembering that He is the God of all comfort. His promise in John 5:28,29 will be fulfilled! His promises will come true Joshua 21:45.

Mr. Landrum was a kind hearted man. He always cared how his employees were doing. He bent over backwards for us because he loved us all and treated us with love. We were his extended family at the school. Mr. Landrum left us all to soon. Mrs. Landrum and family. He was a kind hearted and we'll loved man. I pray that your family can find peace and closure. During rough days to come. Just always remember we are always here for the family.
