On August 14, 2020, Gene "Red" Funderburk, age 67, of Monroe, North Carolina, traded his old body for a new one. Today he is walking on streets of gold and praising Jesus. We can only image what his eyes are seeing!
Gene openly admitted he had made a lot of mistakes and bad choices in his life...but he knew he was forgiven of it all. He knew Jesus died for him...and he knew Jesus loved him...a sinner saved by grace.
