    A Tribute to Mayor Shoemaker

    Mayor Shoemaker was regarded as a brother, friend and family member whose office was always open to his friends and constituents. It is with profound sadness to learn of his passing, however heaven assigns to earth such fine people of His creation as a temporary loan for us to enjoy, learn from and emulate for a short period of time. As The Lord looks upon us to see how well we have treated and learned from those of His creation and purpose, let us remember, emulate and honor those for the positive contributions they have made in our lives. As the most important part between the year one is born until when one transitions to heaven is represented by the dash between those two dates, may the dashes among us who are left behind be influenced by those we were blessed enough to have met. Bill Shoemaker was certainly one of those people who positively impacted my life, welcomed me to my ancestral roots home and interacted with me in a spirit of brotherhood, friendship and family. My condolences and prayers are extended to the Shoemaker family. Peace, love and strength. Tom McKnight
