For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” “Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

  • I want to express my sincere condolences to My Family and Loved Ones of the Sherman Family. Mr. Buck Jr was the first cousin of My Grandmother Gladys Sherman Gause and growing up alongside his daughter Tawana; Mr. Buck Jr always encouraged me as a young scholar and I truly thank him for that. He was definitely a Man of God and always did what he could for his church and community. This day and age it’s hard to come by such strong black men of God who continue to set an example w/ resilience and honor; and I thank him for setting the example and being a true pioneer within the Bucksport Community. My condolences to his Wife Mrs. Charlotte, his lovely children and grandchildren. I will continue to keep all of you in my prayers during this difficult time. May God Bless each and every one of you.
