  • Sorry to hear about Wishard my classmate. It been a very long time since I communicated with him . I do remember him saying that one day Cherry you are going to be somebody’s peacher. He said, “man you are too good of a person for God to pass you up,” smile. If he could hear me, I will love to say to him personal,” if speaking words of acknowledge would put you into Heaven, man you are already there, but I know and feel that you are already there by the life that you lived after the decision that you made with your savior a long time ago. To the family hold up your head and tell God thank you for his earthly life. May God bless you the family. So sorry I am not able to be there with you during these times of sadness. I send my love and prayers with you.
