Remembering Don Meckley

Don Meckley was a sincere Bible student.  He would often stop by my office loaded with questions.  Sometimes he stopped in to drop off an article that really sparked his interest from the "Baptist Bread" devotional.  He loved his family, he loved his church (Mt. Zion Baptist Church), and he was a good worker especially with the church's Bible assembly ministry.  He loved the book of Revelation, and read just about every commentary I loaned him.  We miss him, but at the same time we are glad to know that his sins have been forgiven by the Lord Jesus Christ.  We look forward to the glad reunion day!

Below is a copy of his obituary:

WINDSOR Donald E. Meckley, 75, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, August 10, 2012, at home, surrounded by his family.
