It’s with a heavy heart that I learned of BJ’s passing. Over the years he did work for me, he was always a joy to see and visit with. He was a fine Christian gentleman that I admired greatly. Prayers for your family in this time of loss and grief, but take comfort knowing that he now rests in the arms of our Lord.
