    Vicki and family: We are so sorry. As it is said, “Heaven’s gain is our loss.” He was a first cousin but has always felt like a (brother) to us from growing up with him. He was always a kind, quiet, considerate, hard-working man. Always had a smile to give you! Simply put, most importantly, a good Christian man who loved God and his family! He adored you, your mom, and your family. Sweet memories, I know you will cherish them, each and everyone. Our deepest sympathy! We love you and are praying for you all in the coming weeks.

I was blessed to get to work with Frances, then getting to meet little Vicki and then Lendell! Got to know him even better after he wired a home for us! Later we enjoyed the pleasure of getting to work with Vicki. My prayer for all is the peace and strength Jesus
    gives!
