“That turned into one of the maximum awkward moments of my life that I will never overlook. I advised the people we recognize, and we honor Dr. Juanita Bynum and her gift; however, regrettably, Dr. Bynum will no longer be right here this night. She is in the town, and she is in her room. But because of unforeseen situations that are out of my palms, she can not be right here this night. … The human beings stood up with applause, and we continued to move on inside the service,” he said.
