If I could see you I would tell you how much I love and miss you, If you were here, you and I would build my tent. We could go fishing and you would get me a Slim Jim and a Dr. Pepper. We could go to the beach. I love and miss you and I will see you again someday.

Lynn was my baby brother and I am so thankful for the time we had together. Him and I were so much alike in many ways , I can't remember a time that he wasn't there for me. No matter what time of the day or night I called him he always answered the phone " Hello Sissy what the hell are you doing". I will cherish the memories him and I shared and will forever keep the secrets he swore me to. My only regret is we didn't have more time together but the time we did have I am so thankful for. Till we see one another again baby brother, I'm gonna miss you if only we would have had you longer. I love you brother.

Ralph Lynn Lawley Jr.
Became my step dad when I was 6 years old. He was my dad for a few years but I still loved him with all my heart and I always will. Before he past we had a short conversation 2 days before he died . He told me that he was tired of hurting the way he did. He said he couldn't wait to go back to work and be able to travel. I told him that he was going to get better before he knew it. He told he he loved he and couldn't wait to see me again. God didn't want his family seeing him suffer anymore. We will all miss him so very much. Rest In Peace daddy I love you.

My dear Lynn had a giant heart. During Lynn's last days, we discussed much. He was so proud of his work. He took his Uncle Jerry, me and his Momma to his job sight. He explained all he did and he was so proud of all that he accomplished on the job.

We discussed his babies and he said his only regret is not being there to watch his children grow.

I miss my precious Nephew and know he is at rest. One day, I will be able to hear him say once again, "Hush Aunt Lisa and give me a hug". Lynn, I will see you on the other side of Heaven.
I love you!
Aunt Lisa

Ralph Lynn Lawley Jr., was my little brother. What a true blessing his life had on mine. I knew anytime I needed him, he would be there.
When my husband and I went to visit him on the river I remember asking him if he would give me away at our wedding (at that time it was going to be in a few months), without hesitation he said, "I would be honored". Sure enough he rolled up in my drive way in Houston to give the bride away (without a tux I might add). He had the most beautiful smile on his face when he got here. During the ceremony as he was walking me down the isle he kept saying "slow down, slow down". I was so proud to have him by my side on that special day.

There are so many memories I have of him, but that one stands out the most.

Rest in Peace my sweet little brother. I will meet you in paradise at the pearly gates , and we can go for a walk along the streets made of pure gold. I love you always.
