Leon "Tuna" Tanner

WADESBORO -

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; He hath made everything beautiful in his time: Ecclesiastes 3 (selected verses)
