Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Brother Gilbert Waugh. I got acquainted with Gilbert while he was at Kingsbrook Lifecare Center, when I was the Chaplain. He was faithful to attend Chapel services and participated in our music ministry. Gilbert was loved and appreciated. May God bless the family.
