So sorry for your loss... My deepest heartfelt condolences to the family. My thoughts & prayers are with you all. May God bless you all & keep you under his spirit.
Your life and service to God is an inspiration to those who know and had the privilege of being a part of your life and Ministry. You'll be dearly missed. It was time to let you return to the one who created you, in my minds eye i can see you standing in the place where Moses stood as Joshua continued the journey of leading the Children of Israel and his own family. I see you standing at the top of the mountain as their walking away to the promise land. All that you taught us and instilled into us through your "FAITH" teachings will forever be written in my heart.. And as Moses witnessed them leaving. I believe God allowed you also to stand at that same place.. Not alone but also in Gods presence as he allowed you to see such a glorious sight... Pastor O... You've been more than just a Pastor you've also been my Spiritual Father.. You took us in and you imparted your wisdom & knowledge you worked so hard and long to deserve... You'll certainly be missed.. Until the day we meet again Pastor Otis.. My thoughts of you will forever be etched into my heart.. Love in Christ Pastor Otis... Continued prayers for your family as well...
Sincere Condolences to the family.

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Marion. I can’t imagine how difficult these times must be for you loved ones. Please remember and take hope in the message Jehovah God gives us in Acts 24:15, which says “there is going to be a resurrection”. There's more information on this promise that God gives us at jw.org in both English and Spanish. My deepest condolences.
He was a fine person and a coach as well, RIP Milton!
