Nathaniel “Honey” Fort Jr. Obituary

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” – Psalm 23:4

My life was beautiful for as long as it lasted, but the journey of my life has come to an end after eighty-nine years. God promised all mankind three scores and ten. He gave me nineteen additional years. As a family, you must accept God’s will and abide by his holy words. The Bible tells us that to be absent from the body is to be in the presence of the Lord.
