    Saddened to hear about Bob’s transition to eternal rest. Remember God has got your back. Bob and Mamie, my cousin, were so supportive of me while I lived in Columbus attending The Ohio State University. Family know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Sis Flack,
    I am very sorry for your loss. The boys and I are keeping you and the family in prayer. Deacon Flack will be greatly missed.

  5. We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to your family. In just a little while all of the pain and sorrow that we feel from the death of our love ones will cease and be replaced with joy, because the former things have passed away. With caring thoughts.

    Sister Eva Flack and Family,

    Our family continues to pray that God strengthen, comfort and provide peace today and future days to come to each of you! Wow, still shocked that my dear Brother Flack has passed from labor to REWARD. God knows he earned his crown to lay at our Master’s feet. God’s word reminds us in “II Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” We shall forever remember Brother Flack for the numerous acts of kindness he rendered to our family. Rest easy my beloved Brother and know Brother Twitty shall think of you each time I “tee it up” on the golf course :).

    God bless and much love to each of you,

    -Brother William, Sister Jennifer, William II and Wynton Twitty – Raleigh, NC
