Brother Frank "Tubee" Youmans Jr.March 5, 1923 ~ August 27, 2017 (age 94)
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me….

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around you and whispered “Come to me”
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and saw you quickly fade away
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best!
