We mourn the passing of Rev. John Wilkins today. His legacy of music, love and service will long be remembered. This photo was taken the last time he played the shop and we’ll always recall watching him smile and proclaim “…and that’s way we get along.” Rest in peace, Reverend. pic.twitter.com/iEpnkZSQGn
