At Isaiah Robertson’s funeral, Minister Marsha McWilson’s poignant rendition of “May the Work I’ve Done, Speak for Me.” filled the Mt. Erie Baptist church, her voice reverberating off the golden walls he has left behind. ‘When I’m resting in my grave, there’s nothing more to be said; may the works I’ve done, let it speak for me…’ “Hallelujah…Praise God,” as Prophet Isaiah would often say.
