    Sympathies to the family. Christians have comfort in believing the resurrection and knowing that we will join our loved ones in the heaven Jesus won for us.

  3. Richard Timothy Underwood Says:

    I am just now finding out about the governor’s passing. Another confirmation that I will and must soon go east to re-connect with my family’s history and the part of the country I belong in. I am saddened that I will not now be able to meet Cecil in person, as i have wanted to for quite some time now. May the Creator be well pleased with the life and accomplishments of our brother Cecil Underwood, and peace and blessings be upon him. Glory to God.
    Richard T. Underwood (son of Dudley Underwood, cousin to Cecil)
