John Lewis Briscoe
“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the
Righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”
~ 2 Timothy 4:6-8 ~
