The service and floral arrangements were in memory of Pastor Billy Turner (New Orleans Saints) and Wayne Browning (LSU). Bro. John Kavanaugh delivered the inspiring message “A Heart Like Daniel.”
Florence Bethard played the piano and that’s always a special treat. The hymns we sang were “We Gather Together,” “How Great Thou Art,” and “Amazing Grace.”
Buddy Fowler did the welcome/ announcement, introduced Rev. John Kavanaugh, read scriptures and read the memorial for Billy Turner that was written by Mary Turner. Rev. Jerry Brannen gave the memorial for his father in law Wayne Browning. Arthur Mangham and Dickie Milner took up the offering.
Dr. William Peeples & his wife Fane came. And Rev. Doug Cain and his wife Martie came for the dinner after he preached at FUMC Coushatta.
Of course there was plenty of delicious food. It was a wonderful day filled with many blessings!
