“I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course. I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all who have loved his appearing"
Walter Larry “Candyman” Fland was born on February 7, 1959, to the late Ora Dee Fland and the late Charles Brister. He was the oldest son of 10 siblings, and he would always remind us of that (one of his sayings to his sisters and brothers, was I am not the oldest for nothing).
