Tennessee authorities are investigating the death Wednesday morning of a Memphis pastor .

Quentin Barlow, 36, was found dead in his home on the day before Thanksgiving from unknown causes.

Barlow’s cousin, Samantha Westbrook, said she received the bad news in a phone call from her cousin. 

“We’re grieving, we’re hurting, but our faith and trust remains in the Lord,” Westbrook said. “That’s all we know to do at a time like this. It hurts.”

Police had crime scene tape up at Barlow’s home as family members converged on the scene.

Westbrook said police do not suspect foul play at this time.

“We feel like Jobe,” she said. “The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.”

It’s  a sad holiday for the family.

Barlow leaves behind a wife and three young children, including a month old baby. 

“I’m just shocked,” Westbrook said. “We’re all just shocked, my entire family.”

Police are still looking into the cause of death. The family does not have any funeral arrangements made at this time.
