Dear Lufkin Family: I want to send my sympathy to you all. My dad, Ed Carbone, was friends with Mr. Lufkin growing up in Lynn. In fact, he introduced my father to my mother. I always heard nice things about "Kenny" Lufkin; he and my dad had some good times and lots of laughs together. I met him at my dad's wake. He was a nice, kind man. I am sorry for your loss.
