Just sitting here thinking it could have been me years ago on the ventilator and coma for almost 3weeks, aneurism, and meningitis. But God kept me hers for a reason. I shared this the other night with my brother to encourage my brother Seekie Williams about getting on ventilator. Therefore he had time to talk to God. To all Facebook listeners. It took the Ventilator, 12 hours to live for me to get it right and because of who I am. If you are not save. I’m begging you don’t wait another second or day. My brother has already lived his life. If you really love him that much. Give your life to the Lord. The ventilator is no joke with tools everywhere. I have experienced it, can’t move, don’t know nobody, can’t hear nothing. Stay your distance. This Virus is real. Even after this God is Real. I will be glad to talk to you or Pray with you. Inbox me or call 2524683529.Tomorrow is not Promise. Stop taking chances with your life. Please everyone that read this share and post on your page. Elder Samuel Edmonds
Photos I Taken During The Homegoing For Mondrake Bynum
It is with great sadness we were notified that the former Fire Chief of Princeville Volunteer Fire Department, Chief Don Pollard, transitioned from time to eternity.
During his distinguished career and dedicated service to the Princeville Fire Department, he faithfully served in many capacities while working his way through the ranks. Chief Pollard’s passion for the service to his community was so unmistakable and plain. He is most noted for his unrelenting leadership during a trying and turbulent time for Princeville Fire Department when the flood of 1999 destroyed the station, equipment, and countless other things that left the members with the lingering question: “Where do we go from here?” Chief Pollard’s response was “we’re going FORWARD from here.”
We are thankful to have derived an advantage of life lessons while serving under Chief Pollard’s leadership. One of many lessons from his leadership that we thrive on today is if something is highly valued and is of great significance and is important to you, STAND YOUR GROUND even when it’s disfavored by others. This lesson did not come without a warning. He demonstrated that before you stand your ground, you must do your due diligence to make certain that you are RIGHT.
To his wife, children, grandchildren and great grands, thank you for sharing Chief Pollard with us up til the day he traded in his fire gear with 39 years of service for a fishing rod of retirement.
In closing, there is a story told of a man who hosted his friends over for a dinner. When his friends arrived, they noticed that the host kept getting up and going in the bedroom. After the third or fourth time, one of the friends asked the host, “what are you doing?” The host replied, “every night I check on my children when they go to bed. I check on them periodically because they all fall asleep at different times. But what is interesting is in the morning, they get up at the same time.” Here it is! Take comfort in knowing that Chief Pollard may have fallen asleep first, but he’s going to get up with us at the same time in that great getting up morning. Take comfort and rest in this promise.
On behalf of Chief A. Brown, Deputy Chief L. Harris, the officers, members, auxiliary and Board of Directors of Princeville Fire Department, we offer our sincerest condolences. Our prayers are with you today, tomorrow and in the days ahead.
In His service,
Chaplain Alvin Lafon Jones
