To Pastor Terrance Ford and the Ford Family, You have my condolences and heartfelt sympathy. I only met Reverend Willie Ford once and briefly, but from all that I've seen, heard and read about him, he was one of God's best. Will continue to pray for the family.

I am blessed to have been a member of Bethlehem since my childhood and as an adult. I'm very saddened by the lost of Rev. Ford. He was not only a great pastor but an exceptional example of what a father and husband should be. Rev. Ford has preached a many sermons that has BLESSED me. He also has encouraged me on some life lessons that I will never forget. He was truly a blessing in my life and his firmness and smile will be forever missed in the church ⛪. May you continue your work in heaven. Amen!!

I love you and will miss you. You have been there for every important part of my life...my baptism, my High School and College graduations, my marriage, the baptism of my only son, and his High School graduation. Also, you prayed for my husband and my daughter when she was going to Iraq to fight in the Gulf War...
