    So sorry L.C. passed away but so grateful for the great Christian example he was. He was so dedicated to MGCS, and we missed him so much when he moved to Florida. He loved his family, and I’m so glad he spent the last ten years or so being dedicated to them. He was an inspiration and will be missed. It’s comforting to know he is with God.
