Obituary "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 4:6-8 David Calmitchel Holmes went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at Dundee Manor Nursing Home in Bennettsville, South Carolina after an illness.
