December 29, 1933 - February 24, 2019
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 my 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.
