Dear Renee, family and FBC Athens family,

Suzanne and I did not have the honor and privilege of knowing Pastor David long but give thanks to our God when we hear of the testimonies of our First Baptist Church of Athens family of his love for Jesus Christ demonstrated in faithful service to Him as the Children and Young Families Pastor.

We will continue to pray for you and your dear family in the days ahead.

Love in Jesus,

John and Suzanne Crocker

"it will be worth it all when we see Jesus." May you feel the love and know how special David and each of you are to us.". May God's peace caress you today. Keep HIS song in your hearts.
