Carnell Warren Tate
March 24, 1935 - January 25, 2022
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: II Timothy 4: 6-7
Early Tuesday morning, January 25, 2022 God walked through his garden of life and picked a special rose for his heavenly bouquet. Sis. Carnell Warren Tate quietly slipped away to her eternal home, not a whimper, nor pain, and she was gone. God whispered come home my child and rest from your labor a job well done!
