I am so sorry to hear this. I know your hearts hurt. Mine hurts with you. From the time I was small, Lyndell always came up with fun ways to pick and have fun with me. When I was a little girl, he always pulled my pig tails, and as I grew, he picked on me about something in a fun way. He loved to laugh and had a great one. I am missing him with you and praying for you as you go forward carrying on his legacy.

Lyndell will be greatly missed. Whenever we would run into each other, we would engage in merciless teasing and verbal sparring until we both laughed out loud.
