It will be strange, returning to the home base church and not seeing Pastor Davis's sweet, familiar face sitting on the front row, stage left. I loved hearing him say, "You're one of my favorite people." It was one of the small things that I took for granted. Bro. Davis was a wonderful man who never met a stranger, and he shared Jesus wherever he went, and with whomever he met. In 1989, although I had attended his church just one year before moving to Arkansas, he traveled all the way to Jonesboro to help officiate our wedding. He was a faithful friend who, I know, lifted us often before the throne. My life is definitely richer for knowing him.

Pastor Davis, we'll see you on the glory side!
