When peace like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say It is well, it is well, with my soul.......

What a solemn day it is to announce that God’s role model of a man has crossed the swelling tide. Rev. Theadore Headen, former Presiding Elder of the Elizabeth City District in the Albemarle Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church stood on the banks of Jordan Monday April 20,2020 at Sentra Norfolk Hospital and saw the Ship of Zion come sail by, once he looked up and saw it was Jesus himself was the captain of the ship, he quietly tiptoed out of the room and stepped onboard. 

The heartbreaking task of planning the Life Remembering services for Pastor Headen have been finalized and will commence on Sunday, April 26,2020 from the hours of 5pm-7pm for moments of viewing at Hortons Funeral Home and Cremations Chapel. Due to Covid 19 a private interment service will take place at Markham Memorial Gardens In  Chapel Hill, NC. A public memorial will be held at a later date.

The Compassionate Professionals of Horton’s Funeral Homes and Cremations are walking hand in hand with the heartbroken Headen and connected families during this time.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, Let this blest assurance control, That Christ has regarded my helpless estate, And hath shed His own blood for my soul It is well with my soul.........
