“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.” I Thessalonians 4:13

The Bible explains that our time on earth would be three scores and ten, so God fulfilled his promise over my life by allowing me to spend four extra years preparing each of you for my departure. As I depart this life for eternity, please don’t shed any tears or sing any sad goodbye songs. I couldn’t stay another day when I saw those angels opening those golden gates. As I walked those timeless stairs, God Almighty was standing there. Farewell to my family and friends. My time on earth has ended, you know.

Arthur Hargrove was born on January 13, 1949, to Gilbert and Annie Mae Hargrove in Riceboro, Georgia. He received his formal education at Todd Grant High School, Class of 1967, in Darien, Georgia.
