Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:1-3.

Thurman Lewis Bell, age 84, a resident of Baton Rouge, La, passed away on October 28, 2019.

He was a native of Strawn, Texas and was raised in Port Arthur, Texas.
