Reflecting back over the past few years, I am so grateful to God Almighty for bringing brother Sutton into my life.
A few poignant memories of brother Sutton, begin with a man who foremost was committed to serving the Lord. Always a good teacher (by words, deeds, even in silence) throughout the time I knew him. If anyone ever needed a smile, they could look to brother Jerry as his seemed to be perpetual and was often accompanied with his lighthearted stories. He loved people, especially children. He loved his family dearly. He was ever thoughtful of others, while quietly enduring his personal challenges of declining health.
If we remember nothing else, brother Sutton exemplified a man who knew where eternal riches are stored. He held firm to his uncompromising convictions to share God's word with whomever would listen.
He is my brother in Christ, he is my friend and he left each who knew him untold riches to share as did he.
