I know this may be one of the hardest trials you have had to face in life. But remember there's a friend named Jesus who will wipe all your tears away. He wants you to cast all your cares upon him and he promised never to leave you alone.

The Southern University family has lost a loyal member of the "nation!" He was indeed a fine and true defender of the blue and gold. As a member of the Southern University Board of Supervisors and a fellow life member of the Southern University Alumni, I want to extend condolences to his lovely wife and family!
