Evangelist Jacquelyn Lopez Dear Mother Mae and Family, Just want to know that we (Oakwood Chapel Church) are praying for you all. Pop Davis is going to be missed. But, as you know, he is with Jesus which is much better than being here. For the bible says. To live is Christ, to die is gain. God bless and love you all. Evangelist Lopez
