    Just read in the Charlotte Observer of your dad’s passing. My sympathy and prayers are with you. I worked for Mr. Grass at Clear Creek Bapt. church in the ’70s. He did so much to encourage me to continue in ministry. Because of his encouragement I enjoyed some 30 more years of ministry as a Minister of Christian Education. I have so many wonderful memories. He and your mom were truly a blessing to me and my family.
