Seeing Mr. Creech a couple of weeks ago leadin
I had the privilege of meeting Mr Creech a couple of weeks ago, He was walking briskly to the next section of UNC complex, His father-in-law introduced us. I remember thinking, “What a strong man”. And he was faithful to the end, still leading his family. May God comfort all of his family’s hearts!
I am so sorry to hear of your father’s death. Will be praying for the family
I am so sorry to hear about Eddie passing. I remember him very well. He always had a smile on his face. It’s been many years since we have seen each other. However I have thought of you both over the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
Anne, I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know about Eddie’s death until today. I have so many memories of his years of working with my dad. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.
