    LOVE AND PRAYERS TO ALL

    Today we say goodbye to a wonderful, God-fearing, sweet & special friend. Bro. Lucky was one of a kind & had a heart as big as Texas. He learned he had cancer of the liver on the 11th of this month, (on top of other ailments & health issues he had been battling), and went to his permanent home Thanksgiving night, the 24th. 13 days. I had seen Bro. Lucky once or twice but really got to experience his character about the 3rd time I was around him. Bro. Lucky was fond of western wear & had a beautiful white western shirt with red roses embroidered on it & snap pearl buttons. We were having supper after church where he attended, (Bro. Lucky was not a member of our church although he was faithful to visit us many times), and he was walking to the table with a plate heaped with food. His shirt was a little tight on him and Bro. Harold, his pastor, was ribbing him about it. Bro. Harold said, “That’s why your shirt is too tight, right there, Bro. Lucky.” wagging his head at Bro. Lucky’s full plate. Without missing a beat, Bro. Lucky said, “Naw. It’s humidity. Humidity done got all up in my closet & shrunk all my clothes.” Neither man knew I heard them & the conversation was just between the two men but it cracked me up & made me love Bro. Lucky even more. He was the one who always had & gave kids & grown ups like me candy in church to keep us quiet. He also had $2 bills for kids with birthdays & loved a good joke. He was known for his plain speaking, his turn of phrase, and his deep and abiding love for the Lord. He loved a good time but when a church service started, no more joking around. He was serious about God. He was also serious about his family, his friends, & what he believed in and stood for. I didn’t even know Bro. Lucky’s real first name. But I don’t have to. I know the man. And I will miss him.
