I was blessed to listen to Brother Bailey preach. He was a true man of God. He had been healed & is certainly rejoicing with the angels & his family. The Lord needed a carpenter to help prepare all those mansions up there in Glory. May you have comfort and that peace of mind that passes all understanding as your heavy hearts grieve his ohysical presence with you. He has gone on to where we want to go eventually. Bless The Lord for the time we shared with him.
