I am a resident at Gateway Apartments where Lindsey lived. He was loved by many here including myself. He did have an amazing ability to write songs and poetry and recite it from memory. He will be missed by many and no doubt he is rejoicing in heaven today!

So many memories! Over the years we have laughed and prayed for each other. We knew you since you started dating Sue. Our kids grew up together. We always see each other at church. Time has gone by way too fast. We will miss you Lindsey and we will see you again. I know you are telling jokes in heaven and praising God.
