23 Psalms “The Lord is my Shepard I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me: they rod and staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine ; my 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 forever. His cremation will take place at “The Witness Crematory” located inside of Michigan Memorial Funeral Home.
