“To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be born and a time to die” (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
On Friday, Sept. 17, 2021, at the age of 10, the angel of the Lord came and claimed the soul of one we love so dearly.
Ta’Nahj Ja’Quan Moses was born on Oct. 11, 2011, to T’Ona Brown and Emery D. Moses in Bogalusa. He was a student at Central Elementary School in Bogalusa.
