Angela Pryor; Born October 12, 1950 to Calvin and Rosella Deese. I am a Native American of North Carolina of the Lumbee Tribe, and a graduate of Finney High School in Detroit, Michigan. For a short time I attended Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan for computers. I attribute the inspiration of this book to God as I unfold the pages of Ernie's life, as it was told to me by him and as I was privileged to see for myself as God touched his life, as the Holy Spirit guided me and also through original documentation. This true story is only a glimpse into the life of a man who loved God more than life itself and struggled with sickness for over forty years yet never questioned God or lost hope. At times he felt he was struggling as Job had. This account tells of his joys, his hopes, his struggles with sickness, and how God delivered him from near death so many times. He was a living testimony to those around him. However the greatest gift God had given him was the greatest treasure of all.
