    Dez, was a dear friend of mine. He will be missed by me and so many at GNABC. We song together in "The Choir" and worked together in the Finance Dept. Lisa and the family has my deepest sympathy. "God is our refuge and strength always ready to help in times of trouble "....Psalm 46:1

    My husband and I really enjoyed hearing him sing. Also trying to encourage my son to come and sing with him. He had a godly mentality and loved his family. So now we plan to celebrate him. Gone but not forgotten. May God provide comfort to the family.

    Lisa and Desmond's families and friends, please accept my sincere condolences. Desmond's passing was a shock to me. I have come to grips and accepted the fact that our Heavenly Father knows best. Even though we might not understand, God in His infinite wisdom makes no mistakes. We yield to his will and treasure Desmond's memories. All is well. He is resting safely, in our Father's arm. Keep the faith and continue to receive God's blessings. He will comfort and protect you. I love you. Joan Edwards Sadler
