It is my prayer that God will grant you the utmost peace and comfort now and in the days that lie ahead. I have nothing but the fondest of memories of growing up with L. C. and his sisters in the Elm Grove community. In talking and sharing with him from time to time, I know that he loved Elnor, Mary and Ann and appreciated all that you did for him. May God grant peace and comfort to all of the family.
