    Our heart felt condolence to the Wife, Daughter and Family of the Late Joseph Gittens.
    Job 19 vs 25,
    For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God. May he rest in peace.
