To Mr. Posley's Family.
Mr. Posley was always a very nice man. I feel like I've known him all of my life because my Grandfather was a Deacon at Mt Olive and they were friends.

Whenever I saw him; he always had a kind smile and I would remind him that I was Dea. Sam Jackson's granddaughter. May God bless you all! 💖

Brother Booker Posley , simply the Best Instructor of the WORD. After I received my calling to Preach the Gospel, I called Brother Posley. He told me what to expect, he said , look at the Prophets in the scripture--their reaction was the same as most today. Nobody feels worthy. He then said "Call Dr. Harris" he will get you set up. I miss many things about tomorrow, one thing for sure is the Thursday Night Teachers Meeting at Mount Olive. Between Dr. Harris and Brother Posley --We Got The WORD !!! Family members from out of state would call and ask Brother Posley questions about the WORD. Rest in Peace Sir!
Thank You again and Again for sharing your awesome gift of teaching the WORD !
