My dear Kristin, you’re in my thoughts and prayers. I remember how sad I was when y’all moved out of the dust bowl. No more playing with Barbie and kick the can and roller skating to Billy Don’t Be A Hero. I remember 4th of July at your new house on Ormond Oaks and breaking my collar bone in the wheel barrow race after my brother Paul fell on me. I wouldn’t trade our childhood for anything in the world. Your daddy was such an amazing father and like my daddy he was one of the last of the greatest generation of our life time. He was a true American Hero. I’ve said it many times and it’s so true but we never really become adults until we bury our parents. You were an amazing caregiver and daughter and as they close the coffin tomorrow as you tell your daddy good bye for the last time. Hold your head high and feel the warm and loving embrace of both your parents .I love you my friend.

Mr. Lambert stumbled across my path when I was 17 years old, 6 months after my own grandfather passed away. The day that I met him, he was trying to get into his car but it was raining. I found an umbrella and held it over him so he could get in. He thanked me and then told me to get inside before I melted. I felt that he was an angel sent to me during my time of grief. Over the years, I got to know him and he became like another grandfather to me. We would sit and chat about anything and everything. He informed me of his military days and the adventures he went on in life. I was able to celebrate his 90th birthday with he and his family. Wherever I saw him, I stopped to tell him hello and have a conversation with him. He loved hugs! He will always hold a special place in my heart. I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Mr. Lambert was a gem!

Heaven certainly gained a very special angel! Mr. Roland was a wonderful man that was very kind and generous. I will always remember him working in his garden. Always generous with his crop and with his sweet spirit! He will be dearly missed. Hugs to his family!
