Susan and Mark and Family, we are sorry to learn of Holliss death. When we were teaching at Princeton, we knew where to go for good and honest service. Always easy going with such a sweet attitude, we knew our day would be better for stopping by. We will be thinking of you in the days ahead.

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me.This quote reminds me of my brother-in-law, Hollis. He devoted a lot of his time visiting the sick and praying with them in the hospital and nursing home in Princeton. He followed God's Word with faith, anointing with oil and caring for others. I'll remember his smile and simple kindness. And I think he did give all he had to give.
