Statement on Passing of Elder Cal Murrell, the Happy Preacher

—Mayor Andre Dickens issued the following statement:

Homegoing services—and particularly the MLK Ecumenical Service—will not be the same without Elder Cal Murrell, affectionately known as the "Happy Preacher."  Scripture says, "If they keep quiet, these stones will start shouting."  Happy Preacher didn't let the rocks speak for him. I am sure a Hallelujah Choir welcomed him upon his ascent to heaven. I join the rest of Atlanta in saying farewell good and faithful servant. He will be missed.
