So sorry to hear of the loss of your dear loved one. May you be comforted knowing that our Heavenly Father cares for you and your family during this difficult time. May you be comforted by His words found in Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces...” and future hope of the resurrection and be reunited with our loved ones.

Quita Man was always a joy to work with. I had the privilege of working with him on construction projects at TSTC, he was contracted to help with projects for TSTC's physical plant. He was always positive and willing to help in anyway possible. I am so glad I ran into him just a few short weeks ago when he attended a church service at William Booth Apartments. Jeff Stinson
