Our Heavenly Father, with His unconditional love, grace, and mercy, looked down on earth and saw Deacon Hagood’s tired face. He knew that Deacon Hagood was suffering, in pain, and that his road was getting rough. So God gently put His loving arms around him, closed his weary eyes, and whispered, "Peace be Thine,"; as he lifted him from Earth to Glory. No more suffering. No more pain. He is now resting in God’s embrace. FREE at last!
On December 14, 1947, God blessed Harriet Gevomie Blassingame and John Henry Hagood in union with a precious son, Harry Thomas Hagood.
