We just learned about Willard's death. We were out of state at the time of his death and just seen Ron. We enjoyed camping with Willard and Alpha for many years with the Eagle Camping Club. They both were wonderful people. They had such good attitudes about life. A great tribute to them is the wondeful family they left behind. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. John and Norma Hastings

Rex and Rheta, Jim and I will be there tomorrow and are praying for you. We loved Uncle Lonzo so much. Thoughts of him always bring smiles to our faces. I have no doubt God is telling him "well done, my good and faithful servant". He must be having a wonderful family reunion right now. May you find comfort and strength in the knowledge of how much he was loved.
