On Friday afternoon, August 10, 2018 at Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia, SC, God saw fit to dispatch his angels during the peaceful transition as Deacon Jimmie Moore as he entered into a restful sleep. During this transition, he was greeted by his five brothers the late John Henry Moore, Johnnie Lee Moore, Earl Moore Jr., Samuel Moore, Douglas Moore, and one sister, Eva Mae Chisholm. We can just imagine the smiles on their faces as they shouted, “Welcome Home!”
