Dear Classmates:

Anthony Cherry’s father, Pinkey Cherry, and Luby Jackson’s , father-in-law, passed away on August 26, 2023. Our condolences and prayers are with you and family. Let not your heart be troubled and neither be afraid. John 14:1 “14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Mr. Cherry was funeralized on September 6, 2023 at 1 pm. Funeral arrangements were by Rhodes Funeral Home.
