    To the best friend I ever had
    We’re he walked I tried to follow
    And when he talked I tried to emulate his words
    He was an inspiration and roll model
    He carried the Word of God we’re ever he went
    He would say God Is Good All the Time
    I wanted to be just like him
    and I’m so proud to have known him
    My Dad

    And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
    So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.
    Acts 16:30-34

    Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
    Acts 2:38,39
