    Deanna and Marie

    So very sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. House of Prayer has lost a valued member. We enjoyed speaking with him about his leather decorating and construction hobby over the years. Our grandson was fascinated by some of his creations…. Peace to all of your family.

    Good man – good life
