"This is dedicated to the loving memory of Maurice Duray Dickson who was taken to heaven suddenly on July 18. In Revelation 21:4 it says 'God should wipe away all tears from their eyes and there should be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away.'

Everyone of us at the visitation on Wednesday night knew that Reese was watching.
