Early this morning, Brother Lovell M Riley a member at the Gallatin, Tennessee Church of God of Prophecy went to heaven.  Brother Lovell is the father of our District Presbyter, Bishop Gary Riley.

For as long as I have known Brother Lovell Riley, he would always tell me how old he was going to be.  For example, when he was 90-years-old, he would say, “I’m going on 91.”  When he was 91-years-old he would say, “I’m going on 92.”  I think you get the idea.
The newspaper will say Brother Lovell Riley 94-years-old.  He would have told you, “I’m going on 95,”  But I have to tell you….this afternoon is is “going on forever!”  Death has lost its sting and the grave has lost it’s victory.
Please help me pray for his family during this time.  God bless
