Written by his wife Bonnie Day
2 Timothy 4:7-8: “I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith. Hence forth
there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord and righteous Judge shall give me at that day
and not to me only but unto all them also that loves his appearing.”
