Remembering the Legacy of Dr. Session

by Larry Little

Dr. Robert Session was pastor of the Goodwill Baptist Church in Lufkin until his life was cut short by a fire in his home earlier this week. Family members recovered, but Dr. Session died from smoke inhalation.

Saturday afternoon friends and family gathered at the First Baptist Church in Lufkin to pay their final respects. Though folks came to say goodbye, it was a celebration of Dr. Session's life. On this dark day for many in East Texas, humor brought laughter to the audience.

Church members say they will miss him, but they are thankful for the foundation he laid before his departure from this life. Session was pastor at Goodwill Baptist Church for 9 years.
