Uncle Lawrence will be greatly missed. He was a great man who will forever be in everyone’s hearts.
Mr. Medlin will be sorely missed at ADBC, where you could count on him to attend most every activity, service or mission project. He was truly a faithful servant to others and I will miss his gentle teasing and great love for others.
In loving memory of a great man of God 🙏 Blessings to all the family.
