To my daughters, Yolanda, Cassie, Shenkie, Jonique, Melaine, Stacey, Faith, Adrriene and to my sons, Troy, Traye, James, Family and Friends.  When I was in the hospital in October, 2010 for congestive heart failure, I left my body and I stood before the Lord Jesus Christ and I said unto the Lord: “No One Likes My Husband, Who is going to love my husband, who is going to stand with my husband in the ministry?”

The Lord sent me back into my body because of the concerned questions I asked him.  In February 2017, the Lord told me to be ready because he is coming for me.  November 2017, I heard this evangelist speak at the church and the Lord told me it was her, so I told her to say yes, so I can go to heaven.  She said yes to the will of the Lord in 2019.  The Lord answered my questions that I asked of him when I stood before him in October 2010.

When this happens, daughters, sons, family and friends, love her as you loved me.  To my best friend, Bishop William Leon Lockhart, do not wait no long time, Go find your chosen evangelist from the Lord Jesus Christ and you both obey the Lord Jesus Christ.  When she died on September 1, 2019, Mom Lockhart was escorted by angels to her heavenly home, the Holy City.  She answered God’s call at 8:30 am in Orlando, Florida.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Rev.

On Monday, August 19, 2019, Bhupendra Patel, known as BC, —loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, father-in-law, and friend—passed away at the age of 70. 

BC was born in Nairobi, Kenya as was his family. There, he worked for many years as an accountant and financial advisor and tax consultant. He was also a businessman and a curious and gifted learner who started ventures related to the stock exchange, retail, computers, gems, and horses. He moved to the U.S. in 2000. 

He loved people and struck up conversations with everyone. He was a deep thinker and cared about current events occurring globally. He was passionate about family, food, and politics. He enjoyed cooking and was a master at curries. He had stories for days and advice for everyone. He advocated for young people to vote and be politically engaged. He fought for the right to be heard, to learn, to stand up for what he believed in, and for his family. 

He is survived by his wife, Nirupa, his son Neel, his daughter Monali, his grandson Drona, and his siblings: his sisters Ilaben, Chandrika, Bina, and his brother Ashok. He is preceded by his parents, Chandubhai and Shantaben, and his eldest sister Niruben who was a tremendous influence in his life. 

All who knew him are welcome to attend. The family will receive friends from 2 - 4 pm EST on Friday, August 23, 2019, at Dobbs Funeral Home in Orlando, FL. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the National Kidney Foundation memorial page.

He fought hard for everything he was passionate about and he'd want us to fight for other families, too.
