I enjoyed seeing everyone at the TAA Convention. We missed seeing some of you that have not missed in a while.
I talked to a customer who has some serious health issues. He told me to get in the pickup with him so we could look at some of his equipment. I didn’t have a mask on, and we couldn’t social distance. I told him I could follow him in my pickup. He said, “I know where I’m going when I die. I win either way. Get in and ride with me.” If you have read scripture, you know that in the end, we win. Christ is coming back for all of us who have accepted him as Christ and Savior.
Please continue to pray for all of those effected by the Chinese virus and that a vaccine will be developed.
A motion was passed at the 2019 Conference and Show at NAA that the business meeting be opened with prayer. At the 2020 Virtual Convention for NAA, the board declined to open meetings with prayer. I appreciate our TAA Board and Membership acknowledging God at our TAA Conventions.
I saw a sign in South Texas that stated, “Kneel for Almighty God and Stand for the Flag”.
Billy Loyd Sawyers, 65, died Saturday morning July 18th. Loyd was an Army veteran and auctioneer. He was a passionate follower of Christ and lived his life to the fullest. Loyd never met a stranger. And as Loyd would ask, “Has anyone told you Jesus loves you today?”
Long time TAA member Henry Storey went to be with the Lord. I was at the visitation. I visited with Pat and the family. Henry would close each of our FCAI meetings with prayer. He set a record attendance at TAA conventions. I know it was at least 50, maybe more. Henry was selected as a charter member of the Texas auctioneer Hall of Fame and was a past president of the Texas Auctioneers Association which granted lifetime membership to he and Patsy. Henry was a member of Salt Creek Baptist Church where he served as a deacon for over 60 years.
