Dr. Sanson, I am just now hearing of the passing of your husband while reading our Associational newsletter. Your having shared with me about your ministry together at Twin Oaks let’s me know how tremendously he will be missed by his family and church family. I will be praying for you for the peace and comfort that only our Lord can provide. God bless you as He has blessed me with you as my doctor all these years.

Like Luther, the Brinson family were all plumbers, im Kenny Brinson and only a couple of us are left that are still plumbing, having said that, Luther was a great friend to us all. He always was kind and treated people like he would want to be treated. He wiuld come on the job to inspect and then He and I would start talking about Jesus, and He would almost get to preaching. Lol I will miss our conversations, i envy Him because i know where he is !!! Rest in Peace my Brother and look for me when i get to Heaven so we can rejoice together!!!! 🙏🏻
