I am deeply saddened to hear of Lyndell's passing. I pray God will bless and comfort Lyndell's family.

I well remember Lyndell's fine athletic abilities and toughness. We ran track, played football, and graduated together. We were even cousins. Both of us served in the Marines in Vietnam. I always held Lyndell in the highest regard, and envied what I considered be his superior athletic abilities.

I hope and expect to see him again before too long.

My best to his family.

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.
